Similar to Illustrator, is there something like CMD + 3 that would let me hide selected layers?

By default there is no option but I know an unused combination is Shift+Ctrl+M.

You can set it by going to Keyboard Shortcuts

Then it'll also show up on your menu

    +1 - May want to add that if Shift+Ctrl+M doesn't appear beside 'Hide Layers' its because it hasn't been set as such in Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts within the layer section. I just had to set mine for this to work. Commented Aug 13, 2014 at 15:29
  • @Brian woops my mistake I must've set it and forgot it wasn't a default

  • Kudos for knowing it regardless =) I learned something new. Commented Aug 13, 2014 at 15:42
  • Thanks! Any ideology behind using that particular key combo aside from its availability? Commented Aug 13, 2014 at 17:05
  • Maybe mute? It's preference & availability based. Don't forget to mark as correct =) Commented Aug 14, 2014 at 5:27

Just want to say in Photoshop CC, there is a shortcut assigned to it cmd + ,

You can access it if you are already in 'Essentials' workspace.

    I mentioned cmd + <comma> not <apostrophe>? Commented Feb 17, 2015 at 15:15
  • That seemed to do the trick. Commented Feb 17, 2015 at 16:59
  • If you correct your answer (change the apostrophe to a comma) I'll mark this as correct. Commented Feb 17, 2015 at 17:11
  • Hi Carl, but it is already as a comma. I can remove the quotes around that. Commented Feb 19, 2015 at 6:48
