Flipping back and forth between animation frames

I am doing frame animation in Photoshop. Flipping back-and-forth between frames to get the best progression of the motion is foundational in animation, no matter what the media or program. Usually it is done with the arrow button in every other program I have ever worked with, and I have worked with many. Is there any way to do this in the Photoshop timeline? Mouse or stylus clicking back-and-forth between frames is infuriating and ridiculously awkward. But in all of the tutorials that is the only way I have ever seen anyone flipping. Does anyone know how to do this.

You have posted in the wrong forum.

This here is for Animate, not Photoshop.

Thanks for your reply. I posted here because this is where the animators are and I thought maybe some of them might have has some experience with Photoshop. I actually didn't want to learn Animate but because of this one issue, I have to. My needs are very simple 1) flipping, 2) onionskin 3) an editable timeline, all things that are foundational in animation. I find this really irritating. And, after talking to 2 pshop support people after I posted this, I found that you can't flip in photoshop. Mind boggling.

In Photoshop there is a hamburger menu on the right of the timeline with an option that says "Enable Timeline Shortcut Keys". Once checked, you can move back and forth between frames using the arrow keys.
