Here is an easy 1- keystroke, 'flip canvas'.

Open a new canvas with a picture, any will do.

1.open action pallet.
2.click 'create new action', (little page icon at bottom of pallet)
3.Name it, and set a function key, I picked F2, (no cntrl, or alt)
4. click RECORD, then go Image>Rotate Canvas>Flip Canvas Horizontal.
Now press STOP icon at bottm of Actions pallet, (small square icon).

Save your action, to reload if you have to.
Select it, and click the arrow fly out on the action pallet, and choose 'save action'. It''ll save it to the action preset folder.

Now your function key should toggle any canvas, back and forth horizontally.
