As in ArcGIS, CTRL+CLICK, ALT+CLICK, SHIFT+CLICK works for multiple selection of layers, I didn't find a similar one in QGIS. Is there any?

You can select the layers and go the menu View / Hide selected layers.

You can also set a keyboard shortcut to the show/hide selected layers functions: go to the menu Settings \ Keyboard shortcuts and search for show selected layers and hide selected layers and then you can assign the shortcuts of your choice


Select the desired layers in the table of content and press the space bar.

Ctrl + mouse click on the group turn them all on/off.
