Often I find that I want to open the previous or last folder that I worked with in finder. Say I'm saving something to a folder from my camera, I then go to gmail and click attach, it would be great if there was a "previous" or "last folder" button that takes me to where the photos are. Am I missing something, is there a hidden OSX feature that does this?
Additionally, if one wants to map a specific folder to a Keyboard Shortcut, this can also be done.
From System Preferences
- Select Keyboard
- Select the Shortcuts tab
- In the Left Pane select App Shortcuts
- Click the Plus Button
- From the *All Applications** Drop-down, select Finder
- As long as you have the desired folder in the Recent Folders menu, type in the name of the folder EXACTLY as it is named in the Menu Title box
- Map it with a Key combination
Now, as long as Finder is the frontmost application, your shortcut will bring up the desired folder.
