By default, star rating and color labeling items in Bridge requires the Command (Mac) / Control (Win) keyboard modifier. However, selecting Preferences > Labels allows you to remove the keyboard modifier when applying the ratings/labels. After removing the modifier, 0-5 rates applies star ratings, and 6-9 applies color labels. Command (Mac) / Control (Win) > or Labels allows you to change the name of the color ratings (by default they are the color name) to something more specific like “Urgent” or “For Review”. Note: if using both Lightroom and Photoshop, you will probably want to make these labels match.
