I don't always know the name of a file I'd like to run. Often, I'll know the name of its parent folder, or its parent's parent's folder.
This was easy to work through in Gnome-Do. I simply search for the name of the parent folder, then navigate using the arrow keys to the file I want within that folder and hit enter to open the file.
I can't figure out how to do this in Unity. I can only open the folder, and cannot seem to navigate within a folder's contents to open the file directly. Is there a way to do so? Thanks.

"I don't remember the name of the song I'm thinking of. Let me pull up my "Music" folder and look through it."
"Oh that's right, it's Johnny Cash. What songs of his do I have?"
"This is the song I want!"
This is all done quickly without leaving the keyboard. I'm getting out of the scope of my original question here:
Suppose I remember his name starts with a "j" but I don't remember how to spell it. I type "j" and I quickly get a nice filtered list of all my music with "j".
I can also do other things in just a few presses:
