In order to export all of your Layer Comps as independent files, select File > Scripts > layer Comps to Files. You can also export your layer Comps directly to Web Photo Gallery (WPG).

Several of the icons and panel fly-out menu items on the Layer Comps Panel can be assigned custom keyboard shortcuts. Choose Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts and select Shortcuts For: Panel Menus.
