Is there any reason why Windows is the only OS on which you can’t open a folder with a keyboard shortcut?
- On OS X, you can just use Cmd-O to open both files and folders
- On Linux, you can use Ctrl-O to open files and Ctrl-Shift-O to open folders
- On Windows, you can use Ctrl-O to open files, but you have to use your mouse to go to the file menu to open a folder
The problem here can’t be that Windows doesn’t support this behaviour, since many applications do have the option to open a folder. No available keyboard shortcuts also can’t be an argument, since Ctrl-Shift-O, which is used on Linux, isn’t currently being used for something else in the Windows version.
If there isn’t any reason that this feature isn’t included, maybe it’s a good idea to include it in Atom by default. And yes, I know I can customise my keybindings, but it seems to me that it would probably be best if the editor is largely similar on all platforms.
