geodatabase export to shapefiles

I can't seem to find a tool in ArcMap 10.2.2 standard that allows you to export all the layers in my TOC to a directory

with each shapefile file name per layer in the TOC. I have a template geodatabase that I loaded shape file data into, then edited that data. Now I need to export some 100 plus layers from the geodatabase as shape files to update the original data.


Because of that, I'm looking for a Python sample that exports all the layers in my TOC  to a file location or a function that selects the current geodatabase and exports all the features to shape files. Do you just copy and paste Python code to run it?


Is this something that can be none if I've never used Python before. I didn't see a lot of help for it, but I might of been looking in the wrong location. I looked around for a VBA macro editor as well and could located that. I might have a chance with that.


Thank you
