Topic "How to navigate the directory tree with the keyboard."

Author Message



There is a behaviour of the directory tree that is annoying when using the keyboard. Every time a folder gains focus, it is opened.

When I navigate a directory tree there are usually a lot of folders to skip before I get to the one I want. In Windows Explorer I would press arrow-down to get to the folder I want and then arrow-right to enter it. But with WinSCP every arrow-down opens the folder and I have to press left to close it.

Isn't there any setting that will make the directory tree behave like in windows?

No there's no such setting. But you can navigate comfortably using a keyboard in the file panel, instead of the tree.
