In icon view or list view if I go back(button or CMD+[), it lands on the previously viewed folder. I remember in Windows there is this option that took me directly to the enclosing folder with the item selected (just like CMD+ up arrow). Brief research shows that this was like that until El Capitan. Then Apple changed that. So have people become used to this system right now or are there any workaround in action? I think highlighting the parent item in the enclosing folder is helpful in most cases. So I would prefer having the functionality of CMD+Up-arrow when clicking the back button. Please correct me if I am missing something here.
