When browsing on my hard disk I always see the current folder as the first entry in the result list. Furthermore it's written in lower capital letters, even if the original name has upper capital letters (all the other entries are capitalized correctly).
In my opinion there should be an option to remove the first entry. But on the other hand you could also add a ".." entry (for the sake of completeness, which will navigate one level up).

When pressing "left" in file browsing mode while the focus is in the list, the level above is shown but the focus is completely away! Neither in the result list nor in the input field.

+1. Definitely think this should be an option.

Also noticed this. I think once you are in the results list the left/right arrows should navigate forwards/backwards through the directories whilst maintaining keyboard focus on the list perhaps focusing on the first entry in the list until you hit enter to trigger a result or esc to return to search box or tab to enter path into search box.

Hmm, i was actually hoping that the focus would remain in the list after hitting left/right instead of jumping back up to the search box. I think it works better that way imo. You can already navigate fwd/backwards using alt left/right while maintaining focus in the search box.

Yes I guess s.newave has a very good point - focus is already kept when using alt + left/right. Once you are using the arrow keys (without alt) to navigate, to me it seems clear you do not _want_ to type in any filterstrings, therefore focus should be kept in the list, not in the editbox. Other than that, it's great that you keep fixing these newly discovered issues mouser!

my prefered behavior would be :
left arrow goes back to search box and that's it, no deletion of last keyword/folder

so idealy maybe mouser can make it an option

already suggested :
i think some very special options, power-users oriented
could be changed in FindAndRunRobot.ini
that would be sufficient for me, no need to be in the gui
or that could be done through a "registry like table" within the options
where mouser could put other settings
there is such a table in directory opus options (once again pretty amazing options gui)

I noticed another weird behaviour: It seems that the sorting is not correct, see screenshot!
It should be 01,...,09,10,11,12 instead of 01,...,09,12,11,10.
