My eyesight is not good and I use 2 monitors with 2 different settings   for ease of use. I find   that working on a single layer (image) the image  gets  distracted  with surrounding  images/colours.

 

Yes I can select  layers by clicking them  on or off but it would speed up workflow if I could  click on it and hold the mouse button down on it  for 3 seconds would automatically turn OFF view of all other layers.

 

So this is more like an accessibility issue than anything else. Just  a suggestion.

 

Thank you.

Doesn't Isolation Mode do what you want?

Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be worried about.

I think, as @carl123 suggested, that Isolation Mode might satisfy your request:

What if i want just 3 layers out of 30 layers? Instead of just one.

Is there a way to do so?

The fastest way:

  1. click on the top layer
  2. shift-click on the bottom layer to select all
  3. command-click on the 3 layers you want to keep visible to deselect them
  4. click one of the checkboxes of the selected 27 layers to disable them all

Lock the 3 (or any amount of) layers you want to keep visible

Select > Select all Layers
Layer > Hide
Select > Deselect Layers
Layer > Unlock All

The last 4 steps can be made into a macro if you do this often
