Create a 'parent directory' Toolbar button
Authored by: Puzo on Jul 27, '05 09:58:50AM

View > Customize Toolbars... > Path
This Path icon will allow you to go to parent directory. And any grandparent directory, for that matter. Sure, it's drop-down, not true "one click" - is that what bothers you?

You can achieve the same thing buy command-clicking the folder's name at the top of the folder window.

Create a 'parent directory' Toolbar button

People, the issue is not simply how to show the parent folder but to do so with a single click of the mouse. The standard is much more complex: key press, scroll, and select. Column view is no better since clicking on the left scroll arrow won't necessarily reveal the entire parent directory.

This capability existed in Standard File Dialog Box from a very early System, definitely pre version 6 through Mac OS 8 or so. I really, really miss it.

If you'll excuse me, I'm gonna install that script ...
