Hello.

When you have an active/highlighted path layer in the Paths Panel, you can turn off/deselect the active/highlighted path layer by clicking in the empty body of the Paths Panel, usually below the path layers. This act leaves no active path layer selected/highlighted.
 
What do you do when your Paths Panel is completely full of path layers, you've expanded the widow as large as you can, you're using the smallest thumbnails, and there’s no empty body left? How do you turn off/deselect the active/highlighted path layer? 
 
The only workaround that I've found is to create then delete a new path layer. Ther has to be an easier and quicker way to do this!
 
Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Paths are not Layers.  One can cmd-click the selected Path to deselect it.

Yes, paths are similarily represented as layers in the paths panel just as layers a re represented in the layers panel, but I do know that they are not actual layers. It was the best way to descibe my problem so that it could be understood. I'm not going to quibble over definitions. But thanks for the answer, as this was what I was searcing for.
