I wish to use the Backspace key to go back/forward in a open window just like it is in Windows.

I wish to create a shortcut for "go to previous/next visited location" in an opened window.

How can I do this?

It's a default action in nautilus. What file manager are you using? –  Ask Feb 18 at 5:43
    
@maythux: The default changed a while ago (13.04?) to remove the Backspace key shortcut. –  minerz029 Feb 18 at 5:50
    
@minerz029 Thanks for info. I haven't checked that –  Ask Feb 18 at 5:51
