I'm looking for a way to collapse all layer styles at once using Photoshop.

When I say "layer styles", I mean the list under the layer of all the styles that a layer has.

I know you can click the arrow beside FX to collapse a single layer's style, and holding Ctrl while clicking this button does not collapse all of the styles at once like it does with the layer groups.

My only suggestion is to select all the layers you have in your photoshop document and put them in a group, then press Alt next to the inverted triangle that is situated next to the layer styles icon to expand or collapse all of the layer styles applied within a group.
