File menu -> tools -> intellisense manager -> custom

"Go There"
In replace Box: GT
In With Box: {GT}

Add button -> Script button -> paste:

CODE

LPARAMETER oFoxCode

oFoxCode.ValueType = 'V'

local cDIR
cDir = getdir()

if empty(cDir)
    return '*fail'
else
    cDir = ["]+cDir+["]
    set default to (cDIR)
    RUN /n explorer /e, &cDIR
endif

return "set default to " + cDir

"Open Explorer"
In replace Box: OE
In With Box: {OE}

Add button -> Script button -> paste:

CODE

LPARAMETER oFoxCode

oFoxCode.ValueType = 'V'

local cDIR
cDir = getdir()

if empty(cDir)
    return '*fail'
else
    cDir = ["]+cDir+["]

Hit 'OK' button.

Now in the command window you can type either "gt" or "oe" and navigate among directories with ease.
