Our company relies upon a number of batch operation scripts (.jsx). The most recent update (PS 21.0.1) breaks a very convenient feature.

What we want fixed
- Run an action via keyboard shortcut from the home screen of Photoshop (no documents open). [1 user operation]

What we're dealing with
- The action needs to be run via the menu (File > Scripts > Browse > Find Script)  [4+ user operations]
- Open a document, then use the keyboard shortcut (this doesn't work for batch operations unless the script is altered to close the active document before running)
