To cycle through open documents in Photoshop use the following keyboard shortcuts:

Cmd + ~ (Mac) and Ctrl + ~ (Windows) to cycle forward through open documents.

Cmd + Shift + ~ (Mac) and Ctrl + Shift + ~ (Windows) to cycle backward through open documents.

cmd/ctrl + numbers is used to display different channel information in Photoshop.

But is there a way to switch between the two same files (backward and forward) without needing to move your fingers from one combination of keys to another, while having many files opened (more than two)?

That sounds lazy but it's improving the efficiency so much!

I used to be able to do that in CS3 on Tiger and I can't believe I can't do that anymore, now that I have CS5 and Leopard.
