When you’re working on a large document in Photoshop with many layers, a quick way to jump to the layer you want to work on is to:

  1. Select the Move tool by pressing V on the keyboard.
  2. Right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Mac) on a portion of the image.

    A menu will appear when you click and will list all of the layers underneath your cursor.

  3. To make a particular layer active, just click on it in the list of layers. Now, you’ve got your active layer.

    If you click Right-click or Control-click on a part of the image where there are no layers or if the layer is transparent in that area, then only the Background layer will be listed in the menu.
