What is the shortcut key for Format Selection?
Ctrl+1 (the number one) will open the Format dialog for whatever is selected.

Put an Active-X command button on any sheet with the caption "Protect" and attach this code to it:
Code:
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
If CommandButton1.Caption = "Protect" Then
    For Each sh In ThisWorkbook.Sheets
        sh.Protect
    Next sh
    CommandButton1.Caption = "Unprotect"
Else
    For Each sh In ThisWorkbook.Sheets
        sh.Unprotect
    Next sh
    CommandButton1.Caption = "Protect"
End If
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub
