I traverse windows explorer mostly through the keyboard and can open the current file by just pressing return. That leaves the windows explorer window open which leads to clutter. My current work-around is to use alt-tab, alt-F4 which switches back to the explorer window and then closes it. Does anyone know of a single keyboard shortcut to perform the operation I'm after?
