The selected layers are temporarily visible, the others are disabled.

Shortcut is definitely needed

Thanks for the suggestion — there is a way to hide all other layers but only with one layer at a time and this isn't the menus, so this particular feature wouldn't be too difficult to do.

In the meantime, here's (relatively) quick workaround that will achieve what you're looking for:

1. Select multiple layers
2. Press the Command-G keyboard shortcuts to group them
3. In the layers sidebar, Option-click the new group's layer visibility icon
4. Press the Command-Z shortcut twice to undo both previous changes to go back to the previous state

Hopefully, that helps at least a little.

All the answers are helpful, so thank you, but I did realize it myself. I thought I would help and make requests that will make the program more convenient and useful.

Requests are always appreciated! And even if you worked out a method yourself, it's great that you asked since people searching the forum in the future will find this and it might help them too.
