Lightroom: Use arrow keys to navigate the folder tree

Something I'd like to see is the ability to use the arrow keys (up/down) when focus is on the folders list in Library mode. Seems like such a simple thing, but the lack of it is very frustrating. Having to go grab the slider and manipulate it is so non-intuitive ONCE you already are focused on a folder. When the user clicks outside of the nav area, then the arrow keys can revert to some other use.

Presently up/down and left/right arrow keys do the same thing (prev/next photo). Maybe have up/down do prev/next folder instead.

I would not only like to expand and collapse folders using the left and right arrow keys but I would like to be able to move back and forth between two folders using ALT-TAB

Do you know that you can use the Go Back and Go Forward buttons to switch between two folders quickly?

Thanks. I hadn't noticed them.
