I've spent many years working in Windows XP or the equivalent (NT, 2000 Etc.). Absolutely cannot stand Vista but I'm trying to open my mind and accept Windows 7. It doesn't seem as cumbersome and buggy as Vista, but, in my opinion, all of these operating systems have gotten far too, "smart", (or maybe, paranoid is a better word) I much prefer, thin, trim and cryptic; as opposed to grandiose and presupposing. Anyway, I find myself using Windows Explorer a lot. Is there no up button anymore? I don't mean, "back", that is still there. I mean away to go up one directory level to the parent directory.

Any help with this will be greatly appreciated.

I guess you just click the next to the last thing in the address field, right?
