Adding a toggle option to the Content Aware tools in the toolbar

There is no way to hit "J" again and change those tools. I use these 100% of the time, so it would be great if we could use "J" to also toggle between them, instead of using the "right click" and switch to the next tool we need from that menu.

Thank you.

"There is no way to hit "J" again and change those tools."

Of course there is. You can hit shift-j if your preference is set up that way, or simply J by changing the pref.

EXCELLENT! Thank you. :) :) 

Also, do you happen to know why on the shorter Apple keyboard the bracket keys no longer increase/decrease the brush sizes? My full size keyboard is dead, and untl I get another one I am stuck using this little one which I hate, and those braket keys which I use all the time don't do anything. TIA.

otherwise, you can also go to "customize Toolbar" and choose the order of the tools. Example you can put the "Content - Aware Move Tool" first in the list.

No idea why the bracket keys wouldn't be working, but a better shortcut for changing brush size is ctrl-opt/left-click drag.

No, the brush isn't enlarging and decreasing in size; when I tried your shortcut it zoomed in my image and did not make the brush bigger/smaller.
