Hotkey to generate filtered deck?

I've just started using anki's filtered decks and am wondering if there is an easier way to rebuild the deck then digging through menus, since every time it syncs it empties the filtered deck.

Coming up with some other filtered deck questions as I stumble onto them:
any way to know which deck a card comes from in a filtered deck?
any way to keep cards you failed and are relearning in the filtered deck even if you rebuild?
