Open parent folder in nemo

Postby aloysius on Fri Mar 22, 2013 6:35 am

As per subject, is there a way to add such option/functionality to nemo?
It would be particularly useful in dealing with search results.

P.S: I tried a couple of solutions suggested for nautilus, but they don't seem to be working.

Nemo already has that capability - it's the up arrow:

Of course not. Search results aren't like folders.

I don't think we understand each other here.

I'd like to be able to open the parent folder of a particular file, which would be particularly useful with the results of a search.
