This question already has an answer here:

This happens to me every now and then in different projects and I never know what causes it. Anywhere I click, my 3D Cursor and Selection Cursor both move to that point and I cannot separate the two. How do I fix this?

    $\begingroup$ THANK YOU. What feature is that called anyways? The comma shortcut one. Also could you post this as an answer so I can accept the question being answered and you getting credit? $\endgroup$ – Pharros May 3 '16 at 16:58
  • $\begingroup$ It's a Pivot setting - see this link for more info on its behavior. I'm not sure if this will be considered a duplicate or not, so for now I'm not going to post as an answer. $\endgroup$ – Rick Riggs May 3 '16 at 17:02
  • $\begingroup$ The answers are the same, but I think because it's a different question, it might not be a duplicate. If someone is looking for information on how to set the pivot point, that other question would be more likely to come up. But I think it's reasonable to believe that someone searching for THIS problem, might not be able to tell that the other question has the answer they need. What do y'all think? $\endgroup$ – Matt May 3 '16 at 17:56

Piviot Point

You discovered the Pivot Point

This is a very useful feature in blender

Your pivot point is for example the rotation axis.

Maybe you want to rotate something around a Point then select a Vertice/Edge/Face/Object press Shift s to position the 3D Cursor.

Now press r and you will rotate aroud the 3D Cursor

Shift + S for thiss menu
