Bypass The New Layer Dialog

Pressing Command-Shift-N (PC: Ctrl-Shift-N) creates a new layer and brings up the New Layer dialog so you can name it. Personally, I find it kind of annoying and not a lot faster than clicking on the Create a New Layer icon. However, if you throw the Option (PC: Alt) key into the mix, it’ll bypass the New Layer dialog and just create a new blank layer.
