Tutorial end does not work!!!

From: Me


I was checking out the tutorial on making a header in adobe photoshop and then end part where it says "On the layers list, Ctrl+Click on the gold layer to select it, then hold Alt and drag to cut the top off the selection, then do the same for the bottom, leaving just a band." Does not work. When I CTRL+Click the layer it says then try to hold alt and drag it moves the whole layer not just the top. Same when I try to duplicate that motion with the bottom.. What is the deal with that? Is there a step missing?
