I have installed NERDtree 4.1.0.

I have mapped <leader>n to :NERDTreeToggle<CR>.

I would like to use this in a way where I can press <leader>n, then locate the deisred file in the explorer, press enter and have the NERDtree explorer disappear again, automatically.

Can someone help me with this?

Got impatient, looked at the docs. Solved by putting let NERDTreeQuitOnOpen = 1 in my .vimrc.
