Editing Menus

I find that the average Photoshop user (if there is such a thing) uses about 10% of Photoshop's features. That means that the vast majority of menu choices go unused, yet they still clutter the menus and make it more difficult to find the commands that someone actually uses. Adobe has come up with a nice way to clear away the clutter by allowing you to hide those commands you never use and color code those that you use most often.

Start by choosing Edit > Menus to access the Keyboard Shortcuts and Menus dialog box (Figure 1.126). Now choose the type of menu you want to edit from the Menu For pop-up menu. Next, click on the arrow next to the menu you'd like to work with to see the individual commands. Once you've located the command you want to work with (you might have to scroll quite a bit to find it), then either toggle the eyeball icons to hide or show the menu command, or click in the color column and choose a color to assign to the menu command. It's that simple!
