looking for.

Is there a classic explorer mode? That is, I type the first letters
of the filename and then it gets selected. 'Enter' to go forward,
'Backspace' to go back.

'f' does something similar, but it's not the same.

You can't do that by default.  Letters are reserved for keybindings by
design, not for searching by file name.  However, you could remap every
letter key like "map a console find a" and then "map<backspace>  move left=1"
and navigate only with special keys like arrow keys, page up/down, etc.
if that's what you want.

Thanks for your answers.

I was expecting something similar to vim modes. In vim you enter 'insert mode', and then keybindings do not work until you leave it. So that, you would enter 'explorer mode', and then you would browse like that until you leave it.

Just an idea.
