Default Takes and lanes troubles / all items playing

Have one track armed to record , which is a child track going to a parent; I recorded four separate takes and they appear on four lanes when the track is expanded. I like this so far.

However on playback, they all play and I can’t select any single item to pick the best one. I don’t want to layer/hear all takes, just choose one of the four.

Things I’ve tried: I don’t have play all takes on; it wont let me crop a lane to active take (though I wouldn’t want that anyway when demoing items)

Lastly I’ve used a workaround by having the mute button physically on each item, but that's a lot of clicking. Maybe I’ll try to make toggle mute a quick key tonight. It’d be nice to just click an item among the lanes and have that play, automatically muting other lanes in the track.

You don't perchance have free item positioning enabled for the track, do you? If so, switch it off.

Then select the items and implode across single track into takes.
