Avoiding The Layer Menu

Once you’ve applied a layer style to a layer, if you need to access some related commands that are in the Layer menu, you don’t need to go up to the menu bar and go digging through the submenus. Instead, Control-click (PC: Right-click) on the little “ƒ” icon that appears to the right of your layer’s name in the Layers palette. A contextual menu will appear with most of the Layer Style menu commands right at your fingertips—without the searching and digging through menus.
