    Here's a simple question which I simply forgot. How do you select a
    particular object and its corresponding layer? Say you have numerous
    layers and you see the object in the layout; now you select the object
    and its layer; to change the blending mode or layer stack order. A
    keyboard combination and click did the trick, but I forgot it after
    some time away from Photoshop.

    With the move tool selected, right mouse button click on an area of the
    image where you want to select an object on a layer.

    Or hold down Ctrl and right-click. Make sure AutoSelect is unchecked.

    On Mac it's Command-Control for the same thing.

    Indeed, you do select the MOVE tool and right the image. It should get
    in the vicinity of the layer if you created it in some hierarchy. If
    you have many objects on top of each other then it may select the top
    most object. So you need to keep the layer stack order logical so you
    can drill down to whatever layer you need. But then again you could
    name your layers too.
