# Is there a shortcut to open a folder in a Open File dialog?

In an Open File dialog, I can push Return or Cmd - Down to go right into a folder. Yet exists a key series to in fact select the folder as the thing to open? It appears I can only simply make use of the computer mouse to push the Open switch while the folder is highlighted.

(BBEdit is an instance of an application in which I usually intend to open a folder.)

Return (with the ↩ icon) opens up the folder for surfing its materials (unless you remain in column sight). You require to push Enter rather. It is a various key, and also its icon is ⌤.

If you do not have that key on your key-board, you can push Fn-Return to attain the very same result.

Not all applications permit you to open numerous records all at once yet you can open a whole folder from a BBedit (Version 10.0.1) Open Dialog by utilizing the Column sight , picking the folder you intend to open, and also striking return.
