Hiding Tracks / Momentary Link?

I have two questions.

  1. Is there a way I can have the mixer automatically hide tracks that are disabled or maybe hide tracks that are collapsed in a folder?

  2. Is there a way to select multiple tracks and then hold some modifier key to drag faders, mute or solo on those selected channels? Or do I have to create a link and then unlink when done? I believe there are more controls for this in v7 but an stuck on 6.5 for now.
