Photoshop Lightroom: Add a button to the Library Filter tool bar (at top) to automatically search in "All Photographs". Right now, to switch from a folder to "All Photographs" we must invoke the filmstrip (not always open when working on a laptop), then right-click on the file path and select "All Photographs" from the pop-up menu. Having a dedicated button - or a keyboard shortcut - would be much more efficient

Isn't All Photographs at the top of the Folder list at the left?

While it may be (just click on the highest folder in your hierarchy), if you don't have that folder showing or if you don't have a single folder at the top of the hierarchy or if Folders is closed, a button dedicated to "All Photos" on the Library Filter toolbar saves a click or two - and it is focussed to the immediate need.

All Photographs is also available in the "Catalog" palette of the Library Module and is easily accessible there, but it's a cursor move to and another click in a Palette I rarely have open.

"All Photos" is also available in the "recent/favorite" photo sources drop-down menu on the left just above the filmstrip.
