In w7 i know the possibility to duplicate the active window with Control+N

But how can I open the parent folder of the active window with a shortkey ?

Best Regards

After you hit Control-n and the new window opens, hit Alt-Up Arrow. It will go up to parent folder.
Alt-Up Arrow moves to parent folder in the same window in W7 and Vista.

Thank you very much Miles.
I have seen that in "gúúgler", but I would only one sequence.
Best Regards

One idea may be :

Spoiler
SetBatchLines, -1
SetBatchLines, 1
CoordMode, Mouse, Screen
Gui, +AlwaysOnTop -Caption +Border +ToolWindow
Gui, Show, x0 y0 w9 h9 Hide, AHK.WE2CB.DND.GUI
Return
#LButton::
MouseGetPos, X, Y
GuiX := X-30
GuiY := Y-30
Gui, Show, x%GuiX% y%GuiY%
MouseClickDrag, Left,,, GuiX+3, GuiY+3, 0
MouseMove, X, Y
Gui, Hide
Return
GuiDropFiles:
RegexMatch(A_GuiControlEvent, ".*\\", path)
run, explorer.exe %path%
Return


is it good code ?
Best Regards

I tried but only open the same window and is necessary select a file in the folder. So don't go in empty folders.
