Under the "List by Labeling" tab in the TOC, it would be great to switch entire groups of layers on or off. There is a box, but it is permanently greyed out and I am unable to switch all labels off (or on):

The group layer shows as greyed out as it not a layer type that supports labeling.  To turn off all layers within the group layer, hold ctrl and click a labeling check box.  This works to turn them on or off.

thanks

Wow, that is such a great tip! Thank you Wendy. I didn't see this here: https://pro.arcgis.com/en/pro-app/2.8/help/mapping/text/labeling-basics.htm#ESRI_SECTION1_55357542A4... or here: https://pro.arcgis.com/en/pro-app/2.8/help/mapping/map-authoring/contents-pane.htm#GUID-F85656BD-90B... 

Might be a good addition, similar to this:

(Very clever people might think about trying this for other tabs in the TOC on their own, but if you only search for something specific to the labeling tab, you might not check the info under "Drawing Order" or read everything)

thanks for the request.  I've made an edit to the Labeling basics topic to add the ctrl + click information
