Problem navigating folders with arrows

macOS & Mac Apps

Hello everyone,
I do not experience this issue on my Mac Book Pro, but on my desktop, I keep running into a problem when navigating folders. I find that I can not consistently arrow through files, I turn on and off quick nav, sometimes I can only navigate the folders with quick nav on, and sometimes I can only tab through the different folders.
Any thoughts would be nice. I want to be able to simply arrow through the content of folders.

You may be in some view like icon view which is more visual and doesn’t work as well with arrowing through files in a folder. Make sure you have list view selected in the toolbar or by pressing command + 2. I hope that helps.

Try using list view. CMD+2 to switch to list view. CMD UP&CMD+Down to go in and out of folders. Left and right to expand or collaps.
