I just noticed this relatively small but annoying quirk about Windows 7 that wasn't present in Windows XP. In XP, whenever I was in the generic "Open File" dialog that almost every application shares, I was able to type
.. in the "File name" box, press enter to go up a level, and then just continue hitting Enter to continue moving up levels, because each time the
.. I typed would remain there in the box.
But now that I'm using Windows 7, I quickly realized that after I type
.. and press Enter, it clears whatever I typed, thereby requiring me to re-type the
.. each time rather than being able to press Enter repeatedly to navigate further upward. Is there any way to configure Windows 7 to behave more like XP in this regard? It's just kind of annoying.
