Exporting Products from Magento – making it quicker

The phrase take only what you need springs to mind when it comes to exporting products in Magento. The lack of a check all button to ignore all field options in the export can lead to a waste of time if you only want 2 or 3 specific columns. Enter developer tools in (some/most modern browsers) Chrome and a little bit of Javascript magic.

Entering this in the console tab in the developer tools (right click and choose inspect from the menu that appears)  and all the checkboxes are checked and you can spend your time selecting which columns it is you need.
