Join Deke McClelland for an in-depth discussion in this video Managing your most recently used brushes, part of Photoshop CC 2014 New Features.
…Photoshop CC now automatically keeps track of…your most recently used brushes, and this applies…not only to the Brush tool itself, but also to any of the other painting and…editing tools in this central portion of…the toolbox, starting with the Healing Brush at…the top and ending with the Dodge, Burn, and Sponge tools down here at the bottom.…And let me give you a sense for what that looks like.…I'll start by selecting the Brush tool, which you can get by…pressing the B key, and then I'll right-click inside the image window.…
So that you can see the Brushes Shortcut panel, which features not only the size…and hardness values right here, but also a…list of brushes that ship along with Photoshop.…You may also see a few brushes in this area here.…These are your most recently used brushes.…I've gone ahead and cleared my list out, however, so we can…see Photoshop the way it appears when you first launch the program.…I'm now going to select this Brush preset right here, Hard Round,…which we'll go ahead and crank the Hardness value up to 100%.…
