Hi,
Usually when there are many folders in one list , we press any letter on the keyboard and it will take us directly to the folder which start with this letter.
But in my case I have a list containing at least 100 other folders which start with the character "4".
After "4" there are normal letters. Is there a way to click the letter on the keyboard and make it find folders using the second letter?

Its very simple. Press the first letter and immediately press the next letter then both of the letters will be read together and you will be taken to the folder having both of these letters as the initials of the folder name.

Good one samanthamaso, that's got to be a little known trick. Thanks for that.

samanthamason , it worked specially that I forgot to mention that there is a "space" after the 4 so pressing "4 ---> space ---> desired letter" did the trick.

Thanks for your quick support guys
