Im looking for a way to collapse all 40 something layers Ive got open with a quick and simple keyboard shortcut and I can't find it anywhere. Ive googled and searched this forum without any success, all the shortcuts are outdated for the new AE versions

W‌ith no layers selected press the u key once to collapse all or if you get keyframes showing press u again. To reveal all settings on all layers that have been modified press the u key quickly twice.

Select the timeline, Cmd/Ctl-a, hit the triangle twirly on just one layer.  Maybe the u key will work, or the u-u trick.  It's not a keyboard shortcut, but it's faster than one-by-one.

The official collapse/expand shortcut is Ctrl+ ~ (accent grave/ Tilda)
