The Identify Tool can do it, why not the select features tool?

I found a plugin: pickLayer
But yes, it could be a key modifier, or as the plugin does it when you select one object. It displays a menu with "Set current Layer" and that scolls to the selected layer in the layers panel. It could also be a button in the identify results panel "Set current Layer"
