Chapter 4. The File Browser > File Browser Navigation

File Browser Navigation

Like any decent mini-application that resides inside Photoshop, the File Browser is well equipped with keyboard shortcuts (which is just as well, because the new keyboard-shortcut customization features in Photoshop CS don't extend to the File Browser).

In the Folders panel, the up and down arrow keys move up and down one folder at a time. Adding the Command key moves up one level in the hierarchy.

In the main window, the up, down, left, and right arrows move the selection to the next thumbnail in their respective directions. Adding Shift extends the selection to include the next thumbnail in that direction. (You can't, however, make discontiguous selections from the keyboard—you have to Command-click the thumbnails to add discontiguous images to the selection.) Home selects the first thumbnail, End selects the last one. Command-A selects all thumbnails, Command-Shift-A selects all Flagged thumbnails, and Command-D deselects all thumbnails.
