How to get out of the ALT+CTRL mode?

How to get out of the ALT+CTRL mode?
OS: Windows 10

I wanted to be able to move a selection other than rectangle or circle. I don't mean move a layer nor the content of the selection. I mean move the selection as such.

I found out on the web about using ALT+CTRL. I used it and indeed, I was then then able to move the selection as I would a layer.

The problem: I don't know how to get out of that mode. I tried pressing ALT+CTRL again but this doesn't work. Even when I am on another image or if I quit/restart Gimp, I am still in that mode and I can't move layers anymore. Only selections accept to be moved. And many other tools are not responsive anymore.

If someone could tell me how to desactivate ALT+CTRL, I would be very grateful.
I'd like to be able to use it again and to desactivate it easily when done.

Thanks in advance,
