What's the keyboard shortcut to focus/select the address bar in Total Commander (or Double Commander, Norton Commander e.g., any of its clones)?

What's the keyboard shortcut to focus/select the address bar in Total Commander?

I cannot find an easy way to get my cursor into the directory/address bar to immediately start typing a network path or directory, I have to click once or twice to get it editable.

Press Shift+F6 while focus is on [..] item.
