GIMP - de-select

Using GIMP 2.2.4 on Windows for the first time at a very basic level, with the rectangular selection tool I've drawn a rectangle and filled it with flood fill, if I then try to use another tool eg pencil it does not respond. I assume this is because I need to de-select the selection tool first; in Paintshop Pro you can do this by a right click of the mouse, but with GIMP I can't find how to de-select.

I my gimp version the rectangle is automatically deselected, but in other versions I had to select the rectangle selection tool again in the menu, and then click somewhere outside the rectangle.
