How to go up a directory in Vista/2008 using the keyboard (not back)

I posted a gripe I had with explorer http://www.theregister.co.uk/2008/03/28/windows_search_engine_4/comments/ where the backspace key in explorer used to be “Up a directory” in XP and earlier.

However in Vista and Server 2008 they’ve decided that the backspace should be ‘back’ ala Internet Explorer. This was really annoying me, luckily someone posted at the end of that thread that there is a key combination to do it:

CTRL+UP – Up a directory
CTRL+LEFT – Go back
CTRL+RIGHT – Go forward

Useful!
