    Here are the keyboard shortcuts for Windows that you can use when working with masking:

    • B - Brush
    • G - Gradient Mask
    • R - Radial
    • Ctrl+I - Invert Mask
    • [ - Decrease the brush radius
    • ] - Increase the brush radius
    • Shift+[ - Decrease the brush softness
    • Shift+] - Increase the brush softness
    • X - Switching between painting/erasing modes
    • [ - Decrease the brush radius
    • ] - Increase the brush radius
    • Shift+[ - Decrease the brush softness
    • Shift+] - Increase the brush softness
    • X - Switching between painting/erasing modes
    • / - Show current layer mask in the form of red transparent image
    • Ctrl+I - Invert the layer mask

    That is not the question I asked. Please watch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FXJjyJIHNdc&t=324s. I want to be able to have the mask Jim gets while adjusting highlights

    Larry, it works differently in the Windows version.

    If you look at the Histogram, you will see 2 small triangles, one at the top left, and one at the top right.

    If you click on each of them you can toggle them from OFF (outline only) to ON (triangle filled in)

    If they are ON then clipped shadows (referred to as Cold pixels in the user guide) will be shown on the image in BLUE, and clipped highlights (referred to as Hot pixels in the user guide) will be shown on the main image in RED.

    The J key toggles both on and off. (Listed in the user guide as Hide/show clipping)

    You can read the relevant section of the user guide here
