"Toggle track output" shortcut
In my opinion it would be great idea to make "Toggle track output" shortcut and be able to assign every track toggle to different key. For example when I press "1" my first track becomes invisible, when I press "2" second track becomes invisible etc... (Please dont missundersant me, I mean toggle track output, not toggle track targeting. Toggle track output are those "eyes" in the red circle at the photo below.

I agree with this request and will advocate as much as I can to make it happen.

Really sick of having to slow everything down just to do this with the mouse. It should also be possible select a track for active monitoring with keyboard. That sounds like the same thing, and it kind of is, but because of how Premiere's track enabling is setup, it's subtly different.
If I had a large stack of say 8 tracks and I decided that I didn't want to see the output of the top 3, only all the tracks up to track 5 I would have to disable tracks 6, 7 and 8. While logical it would be good if in addition to the track visibility toggles, there was track monitoring, and if you switched to monitoring track 5, that would mean all tracks above it were disabled, but all below it were not because you're essentially controlling where the top of the track is as far as monitoring in concerned.
You can sorta do it now, by disabling all track outputs with a shift-click on any track and then enabling the one you want to see, but the problem is that if you have opacity adjustments or effect stacking across layers this wouldn't help much because you're just seeing the one track's output, meaning you end up enabling all the ones you do want to see, or simply starting out by disabling the ones you don't want to but either way you're selecting multiple layers rather than one.

I vote for that. After Effects has that option and I really need that shortcut in Premiere

Totally agree - maybe i'm editing wrongly but when you have stacked video tracks a lot of the time you want to see the video track under or see how the adjustment layer is affecting others, its annoying to mouse over click when you are already using the keyboard a lot.
