Applying symbology to all layers

Hello everyone,

I'm having issues trying to apply the symbology of one layer to many.

Firstly, has anyone noticed a spooky black shadow on the page when you apply more than 100 classes in the classified symbology? It moves when you zoom in/out - no one I know can resolve this.

I'd like to find out if there is a function within arcmap 10 to apply the symbology of one layer to all layers? If the developers of Arcmap haven't inbuilt this function I'll be very surprised - it seems to be a common requirement if you're dealing with layers that show change over time.

I need to find the maximum/minimum value within all layers and create a valid scheme where all numbers show the exact same colour across all 5000 layers. I'd like to use classified/unique numbers as I'm able to have more classes.

Is there any way to easily do this? (without vba or python - I haven't managed to find a python script yet)

Many thanks for your help, it is very gratefully recieved.
