    I've only been able to test this in Mac OS 10.4.11, but it may be worth a try...

    Using a keyboard shortcut program such as Spark, assign a hot key to run the following AppleScript:

    Code:
    tell application "Finder" to activate
    try
    	tell application "System Events"
    		tell 1st UI element of group 3 of tool bar 1 of window 1 of process "Finder"
    			perform action "AXPress"
    		end tell
    	end tell
    end try
    Make sure that "Enable access for assistive devices" is checked in System Preferences > Universal Access. Good luck.
