Default Is there a key command to zoom in vertically on the channels is the edit window?

I have gone on several fishing expeditions in the manual looking for vertical zooming of channels without having to use the mouse. It can be all or only the selected channels but something like the CTRL+[ or ] except for vertical zooming. I always find something about zooming or some other command and then get off on another tangent. Vertical zooming remains elusive.

It's called track height, not vertical zoom as some other DAWs call it.

Below is for Windows; adjust if on Mac.

Track Height

· Always use up/down arrows together with Start
· Add Ctrl for special choices such as maximum
· Add Alt for all

Decrease/increase selected track heights: Start+ up/down
Decrease/increase all track heights: Start+Alt+up/down
Selected track maximum height (Jumbo) : Ctrl+Start+ up
Fit all shown tracks in edit window: Ctrl+ Start+Alt+ up

Incrementally zoom vertically on all audio tracks: Ctrl+Alt+ [ or ]

That command zooms the pictures in the wave files and not the track height. I want the entire track size to increase from micro up to filling the window. I'd prefer not to have to use the mouse since I can zoom horizontally with the keyboard.

Bingo!
These commands make more sense than using the bracket keys for horizontal zoom. I wonder why they chose not to use the left and right arrows for that command. Seem so much more intuitive.

The frustration that I have with vertical track height adjustment with the hot keys is that protools loses focus on whatever track you are working on instead of keeping it where it is in the edit window. You have to go searching for the track that you were working on after you zoom.

That will not be the case if you select the track you are working on,
deselect Link Track and Edit Selection,
navigate to the track with "Move Edit Selection up/down",
and use the shortcut start+up/down arrow.
If the track you are working on is then not shown in the edit window : start+shift+click on the still highlighted working track in the track list.
