Howdy Sergey,

In Photoshop on Windows, the shortcut CTRL+H toggles Show/Hide Extras.  

Merge to HDR does not have a shortcut associated with it by default, although you can add one via Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts.

Thanks,
David

Sergey,

To test my understanding of what's happening: You're in Develop. Make sure you have at least two photos selected in the filmstrip at the bottom. Does the menu command Photo > Photo Merge > HDR... work properly? If not, then the problem is there, not with the keyboard shortcut. If it does work properly, then exactly what happens when you type CTRL+H?

In which language are you running LR? Which version (see the first line of Help > System Info), Mac or Windows (which version)?

That is strange. I wonder if it's related to running Windows in Russian but LR in English.

You could try resetting LR's preferences: http://www.lightroomforums.net/showth...

That fixes a surprising number of things when LR's user interface starts acting up.

That's annoying -- at least it's working now.
