In Lightroom, it would be very helpful to have a prompt that confirms you want to open a large number of files in Photoshop (if you accidentally had everything selected from a select all for example).
It would require two settings in Preferences > External Editing > Open in Photoshop section:

One to turn it on - ex. "Confirm opening a large number of files"

The Second to specify how many files is "a large number" - 5 seems like a good default.

This prevents a possible freeze/crash/inconvenient situation where your computer is stuck opening x number of photos in Photoshop.

Very useful indeed. Should be active for any number of files above single file.
