Navigate the iTunes Music Store via keyboard Apps
I don't know if anyone other than me will find this interesting but one thing that always frustrated me was that in iTunes, when navigating the iTunes Music Store, you always had go to up to the navigation bar and click on the small arrows to move forward or back through your viewing history.

With iTunes 4.8, it seems Apple has added keyboard navigation: you can now step forward or back through the history using Command-[ and Command-].

[robg adds: These new features are documented, but only in the Help: Keyboard Shortcuts menu item. They are the only two shortcuts listed for the music store, a good ways down in the file. I figured that others, like myself, might have missed them, so here they are...]

These have been around ever since the initial version of the iTunes Music Store. This is not new with 4.8. In fact, you'll notice that command-[ and command-] server as "back & forward" keyboard shortcuts throughout all of Apple's apps: the Finder, Safari, iPhoto, iTunes, etc.

Does anyone know how to type this shortcut with a scandic keyboard (swedish/finnish)?

To get a square bracket ([) I have to press alt+8. Pressing alt+command+8 does not work in any of the Apple's apps.
