Like what :Ve and :E did, but in NERDTree.

:NERDTree %

Works for me. % is the path to the current file, so you can't cd to %, but NERDTree interprets it intelligently and opens the folder instead of the file.

Do you want the ":NERDTree" / ":NERDTreeToggle" commands? Check out:

:help NERDTreeFunctionality

It seems :NERDTree opens the pwd where VIM started. – Cheng Oct 18 '10 at 3:21

One way is to automatically cd to the current file always. This works with NERDTree.

function AlwaysCD()
  if bufname("") !~ "^ftp://"
    lcd %:p:h
autocmd BufEnter * call AlwaysCD()

I don't get it. Added to my .vimrc, nothing changed. I have to type lcd %:p:h, then opens :NERDTree? – Cheng Oct 18 '10 at 3:36
