In FCP7 there is a handy 'unlink' button on the top RHS of the timeline so that when you want to disconnect the audio & video (to stretch audio under other video content etc), in PP CS6 I have not found thins handy button - despite looking for it! Instead I seem to have to control+click (eight click on PC I suppose) to bring up a menu and then 'unlink' the audio from the video track. The net result is the same, but the nifty button in FCP is clearly a much better solution. Have I missed the equivalent button in PP or does it not exist?

The Linked Selection button/command is a CC feature not found in CS6. It works exactly the same way as it did in FCP. Your discovery and Paul's suggestions are the ones you have to work with now. Jorn also has a good suggestion.
Just to say, sorry for not having come back to this thread earlier. Of these two suggestions the only one that seems to work to unlink video from the attached audio is alt+click on one or other of the tracks (ie on the video or the audio tracks). The "global unlink" only happens when you highlight a ;linked clip and then "control+click" to bring up a drop down menu. I have not been able to get "command+L" to work.
