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 press, press enter and have the NERDtree disappear agagin (without having to press <leader>n again).

Can someone help me with this?

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