While that can work, it will not always work.
It will work IF you do not have anything already selected in the right pane (of a dual pane) Explorer.

If you have something selected in the right pane, or in the single pane of a single pane Explorer window, then what you will end up doing in opening (if a folder) or activating (if a program type of file).

What will probably work, whether or not you have an item selected, is ALT (you can let go of ALT, of not, doesn't matter) F then W then Enter.

But I wouldn't bet my life that that is going to work all the time, either.

Nice try, no cigar. Happy
