My winner is #1. #2 and 3 are nearly the same with WF2 - functionality (but more clicks)
1. you can use #applications to switch to legacy-mode, there you can find the desired command. If it's something you need regularly, a mapkey (+icon in tool bar) would save you some time.
2. Select Cntrl -F for search dialog box, leave look for and look by as feature. Go to the Status tab, under rule-selected layer, set the criteria as either included or not. Then enter a value foe your layer. Select find know. Pick any or all items selected then close the dialog box. After which just right click mouse on an empty screen area and choose "delete or resume". If you use this a lot make a mapkey.
3. With the Find tool, select all feature's in a specific layer, then do Edit->Resume->Selected
4. I'm taking an intuitive guess....Try right-clicking on the layer name? Like I said, I'm just guessing, but it's what I'd try.
