Photoshop shortcut for collapsing folders with square brackets?


I'm working in a very complex Photoshop document with many folders. I'm quite shortcut-savvy and use the square brackets + control and alt keys to select layers, reorder them, etc.

What would make my life much easier is if I could collapse folders using keyboard shortcut instead of collapsing them by clicking on the disclosure triangles.

For instance, if I could select a folder with ALT/OPTION [ , expand it with CTRL + ALT + ] (as an idea), check the contents, and then collapse it again with CTRL + ALT + [ (as an idea), that would make a world of difference to my workflow.

Does anyone know if this kind of shortcut exists?

Closing groups isn't scriptable and isn't actionable (sorry for the bad news).

You can option-click on a group to collapse or expand everything further down the hierarchy. So, you can close all groups in a document with a single click.

If you'd like a shortcut, I recommend posting on
