Quickly Navigate In and Out of Finder Folders

Mac OS X FinderI found this by accident today. I thought it was cool enough to warrant it’s own post.

If you highlight a folder and press the Cmd plus the arrow keys some cool stuff happens. Here you go.

Cmd+Right Arrow will open the contents of the folder in your current window

Cmd+Left Arrow will close the open folder in the current window

Cmd+Down Arrow will open the the folder in the existing Finder window

Cmd+Up Arrow will open the parent folder in the existing Finder window.

Try them today. Pretty sweet.
