Backspace in Explorer of Windows 7


I suddenly noticed today that the backspace key in Windows Explorer of Windows 7 has a different effect than that of Windows XP. In the XP days, the backspace key brought you 1 directory level up, just like the command "cd ..", while in Windows 7, it bring you to the last folder you were in instead, i.e. the command "cd -" in the Unix family.

Just a funny discovery.
