I have searched the Shortcuts in Settings but haven't found anything.

I am trying to find the keystroke that will jump the cursor in the browser tree to the parent node. Once at the parent node one can press <enter> to collapse or expand the node, but when one has scrolled through a large number of child nodes, it's a bit of a pain to have to cursor up repeatedly to reach the parent node. I'm sure there must be a single shortcut to do this but I cannot figure out what it is.

Okay, after a disappointing response to my question, I have decided to enhance the question with a picture!

How do I get from the highlighted entry in the list (Riemann Techno Perc Loops) to the parent node (Loops [WAV]) with just one keystroke? Is it even possible?

Just by hitting Tab? that's how it works most of the time in such scenarios
EDIT: Use tab to jump from search field to lower section where you browse Location, then use Left or Right arrows to get to file list and back

A reasonable answer, but sadly not the answer to the question I asked. I already knew about the tab key to get to the list below. I was asking how to get to the parent node. I don't know how to make it any clearer than that.

You use the arrow key, there is no short cut for what you want, pretty sure...

Thank for the reply. That's what I was afraid of!

Not fully what you are asking for, but you can use the Home key to go to the top node. Normally it is faster from there.

Not quite the same, but good to know, thanks. I guess that part of the problem is that Bitwig have used a non-standard, (presumably) Java based UI element for the tree component, rather than a standard macOS/Cocoa/Carbon one (other, lesser OS's are available πŸ˜‰). I've posted a tweet about this. We'll see if @bitwig respond...
