How do you open a folder in the finder?!?!

Post by outrigger999 » Tue Jul 14, 2015 3:11 am

This worked in previous version of LaunchBar the way I expected but has changed with 6.4.1 (perhaps version 6). On some occasions I want to open the 'Applications' folder and not launch something specific in it. When I try to do this by typing in ...App...it selects the correct folder but hitting return causes it to list the applications in the folder (within LaunchBar) and not to open the folder itself. This is how it used to work however I cannot for the life of me figure out what has changed. Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks....

Does no one know how to do this or is the so drop dead simple that I'm crazy for asking the question? If know one knows then I'll need to downgrade.

When you have selected a folder in LaunchBar, tab key, then select Open in Finder.

It's ↩ (Enter). It doesn't browse for me in LaunchBar, for that I have to press SpaceBar. It must be your setting, that's causing this.
You can use ⌘⌃→ (Right arrow) to open up the contextual menu, so you can see the shortcuts for available commands, and use them.
