    Keyboard Shortcut Keys

    In windows explorer you can move up a level by using the - key when you are in the left pane. How can you move up a level using the keyboard if you are in the larger right side pane?

    Welcome to Woody's Lounge.

    I'm not aware of a specific keyboard shortcut to move up one level, but you can use the underlined characters in the menus to select menu items: in Windows XP,

    <code>Alt+V, O, U</code>

    will work (View | Go To | Up One Level)

    The short answer: backspace. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15> You can also use the arrow keys in the left pane to traverse your folder structure. This is not documented as far as I can tell, although there is a long list of keyboard shortcuts in <!mskb=301583>Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 301583<!/mskb>.

    Hey that's a nice one, Mark. It's also possibly an additional benefit that using the backspace key leaves "focus" on the right pane as you traverse up. So, the up and down arrows or the mouse wheel will scroll whatever files are in the right pane, even though you're going UP the structure in the left one. I like that.
