Create a keyboard shortcut to make the current Target collection be what is displayed in the filmstrip so you don't have to go looking for the collection with the tiny "+" and brighter text in a long string of existing collections.

Ha! I was going to suggest a shortcut, and lo and behold, the shortcut I was going to suggest is already there. Give CMD+B / Ctrl+B a try. Apparently it has been there all along, and I never ever thought to look.

The reason I hadn't run across it is because  almost everything i do is in Develop Module (and it's not in the help page there (but is in the Library Module)).    See other comment to John R. Ellis...

A good resource is Lightroom Queen's comprehensive list of all shortcuts: https://www.lightroomqueen.com/keyboard-shortcuts/

"It only refers to Show Quick Collection, doesn't mention Target collection being associated with the CTRL-B"

Yeah, you might drop a note to Victoria Bampton (Lightroom Queen) that the description in the shortcut list could be clarified, e.g. "Show Quick / Target Collection".

So, what about the Help page inside LR ?  That's where the product should be documented best.

Agreed.  You could post a separate feature request about it.

I don't see any links about feature requests - I thought this post would turn into one that the development people would see.   Point me to where to do it ?  thx.
