Lightroom: Let us have Show in Bridge besides Show in Explorer

I use LR on Win7. When working on photos in LR, for processing to specific sizes and resolutions, I usually have Photoshop and Bridge running in the background, so that I can Alt Tab to each program as required. Currently right clicking a photo in Library mode I have only the option to Show in Explorer. I wish there is also an option to Show in Bridge.

For info/interest, my LR Catalog has 554609 photos (mostly RAW) on 14 HDDs totaling nearly 20Tb on a mixture of internal and externally connected HDDs via USB3 and USB2. So its very much pushing the limits of LR. But I havent experienced too many problems yet. Except optimization and Backing up of my LR Catalog, which typically takes about 8 to 10 hours, and I normally do it overnight. Is there a way for the LR to shorten the time? Like maybe updating or backing up only the incremental changes/additions so that the optimization and backing up process doesn't take so long?

I like to have all my photo assets in one huge catalog, but I usually only connect the externally HDDs that I need, although during backing up and optimization, I connect ALL my HDDs.
