in dired, you can use the shortcut “a” (which invokes dired-find-
alternate-file).

Or, you can use this code:

(put 'dired-find-alternate-file 'disabled nil)

(add-hook 'dired-mode-hook
 (lambda ()
  (define-key dired-mode-map (kbd "<return>")
    'dired-find-alternate-file) ; was dired-advertised-find-file
  (define-key dired-mode-map (kbd "^")
    (lambda () (interactive) (find-alternate-file "..")))
  ; was dired-up-directory
 ))

you might make it 'enabled ... i don't recall since i stopped using
the above.

I hope emacs developers makes the above into a dired preference
setting.

Your question is a recurring question. For some other dired faq, see
