Toggle texture in 3ds max viewport?

Is there a way to quickly toggle a texture in 3ds max viewport? In Maya you hit something like 4 is the gray lambert material and 5 is your applied texture map. Is there a way to do this in 3ds Max? Even if it isn't a hotkey how can I achieve this? The skinning plugin I am using is difficult with the texture applied, but I dont want to lose the texture either.

If you are using 3ds Max 2013 my latest Nitrous Set Texture Size Limit script adds the ability to toggle on/off all textures or textures of selected objects.

in the right side "display" menu (looks like a tv), there is a radio button for "Shaded: Object Color" right above your currently checked one that reads "Shaded: material color".

Does the trick, and speeds up heavy scenes a lot. Can't live without it. (I don't use nitrous because I bake normal maps and it's broken.)

Have you logged this? If not please do. I will take a look and see what is going on.

That can be scripted as well, but it appears that the display doesn't refresh properly with Nitrous.

Do you mean that Normal Maps don't display properly or it doesn't bake properly?
