Photoshop: JDI: Allow More Zoom All Windows (Shift+_) shortcuts.

The zoom all windows shortcuts of Shift+clicking with the zoom tool or Shift+double-clicking the Zoom or Hand tool icons in the Toolbar are very useful, as they allow to control if you zoom one or all windows, while the button on the zoom/move tool toolbar must be switched on and off all the times if one wants to zoom one/al windows.

But there are several shortcuts that could benefit of that Shift addition:
The zoom more and less, CTRL/CMD+ or CMD/Ctrl- could zoom all windows if Shift was added.
Fit to screen and pixel size CTRL/CMD+0 and CTRL/CMD+1 could also zoom all windows if Shift was added.
Holding down Shift when using the Zoom/Hand tool contextual menu should also zoom all windows.

Shift (used to) modifies the behavior of the ALT+scrollwheel shortcut by sticking to exact values, so I'm wondering if it would make sense to use CTRL/CMD instead.

Likewise, since it allows for values to remain selected when Shift+Entering in a numerical field, I'm wondering if CTRL/CMD could be used in this case.

And note that it already works for the more ergonomic Shift+CTRL/CMD+Spacebar or ATL/Opt+Shift+Spacebar shortcuts, so it's really about consistency.

And with Arrangements of many windows something like fit-all-images-to-their-respective-windows might be beneficial.

I like the fact that Shift works for all windows when double-clicking on the zoom or hand tool, but still miss the other shortcuts.
