How do I assign a keyboard shortcut to that command Layer Menu>Unlock All Layers? I couldn't find it in Edit Menu and I'm not referring to the Unlock all objects (ALT+CTRL+2).
This pertains specifically to Layers
Option / Alt + Click one of Lock the icons is the only way I know.
The same shortcut works for visibility when you use it on the eye icon.
Thank you for the helpful tip!

You can record an action that includes the Unlock All Layers command. Then you can assign a shortcut to the action.
On what main or flyout menu is the Unlock All Layers command? Where is it listed in the Keyboard Shortcuts dialog?
Or are we referring to the (I think unnamed) option-click a layer's lock icon in the Layers panel (which is also command-click, at least in CC 2017)?
It is located in the Flyout menu of the Layers palette as soon as at least one layer is locked.
It is not listed in the Keyboard Shortcuts dialog. Therefore the workaround to use an action.
Ah. A "contextual" fly out menu item. I've never seen it before. Of course, this probably has something to do with my never having looked before.
Thanks as always, Kurt. You are indeed a true master.
Thanks for the clarification and tip (sometimes the most obvious answer just eludes me... haha)
I try to look for non-Actions workaround because I have to stretch my hand away from the cluster of 'ASDF' keyboard area since Actions require function keys, but it's something I can work with.
