    Can't click on it! OK, I can, but nothing happens!

    You have to hold down the shift key simultaneously to clicking on the enter button.

    Still hoping for a solution!

    To summarise: I want to click the Up arrow to get to next folder above, C:\Users\terry\Dropbox, but keep this window open too.

    In XP File Explorer I can do that by holding the Ctrl key. In Win 10 at present it just opens the parent folder in the same window. Same with Shift key.

    Why do you refer to clicking on a physical button? You press or hold a button. Clicking is a mouse action, on the screen!

    Ahh, I don't click buttons. See, the thing is, I am almost 60 years old and I have been clicking buttons all my life. In fact, everyone I know in the Western Part of The United States clicks buttons. It will be a huge undertaking to get everyone from clicking buttons, and at my age I don't feel up to the task.

    Oh well.

    Then, I'm sorry for making first joke (not that it was any good). With me, the term "clicking" is strongly connected with mouse.

    Thanks for posting and clarifying it!

    Then I guess that I didn't even see the joke. I am very sorry.

    I see a new shirt in the making;

    CLICK MICE, NOT BUTTONS!!!!!
