Foreground selection tool does't change background color
Struggling with the foreground selection tool. Gimp 2.10.6. Windows 10.

I select the foreground selection tool, I select an area around the area I want to "extract" and I close the selection with the yellow circle. Then nothing happens. The background doens't change to blue. I just have an image with a closed selection line. Totally stuck.

I have tried using my own jpg image. No luck. I am using Lynda.com to learn Gimp and have their exercise files, in this case a surfer dude, so I know there is nothing wrong with the image itself. No luck.

Any ideas?
Thanks.
