Two other ways.  Either do command n to open new window and it will also be in 
the bottom of your sidebar, or you will see it in the browser.  Or a faster 
way, is to just line up on it and do command o which will open it.  At that 
point since it is an open window you can navigate around the whole computer so 
if you wanted to move a file from documents you can just go to their via 
sidebar, although perhaps there is another shortcut that I can’t remember at 
the moment, then find the document, command c to copy, then go back down the 
sidebar to your external drive, and either paste via command v, or move the 
file via command option v.  

For some reason in the past two major OS upgrades the VO spacebar to open 
things on desktop doesn’t always work.  Fortunately there are usually two or 
three different ways to skin the given cat.
