I'm used from Windows to press alt+up to navigate to the parent folder in the file explorer. When I do this in the Unity file manager, it moves up but it also opens the HUD, stealing focus from the file manager. Is there a different shortcut for the navigation or another workaround?

  1. Change the HUD's use of the Alt key:

  2. Change shortcut keys for Nautilus:
