Instead of clicking a folder, can you do height tabs, so that you
come back to the file select.

The behavior here is, now the entire text in file select is
highligthed with background yellow.  This is suppose to give
behavior after first click; previous state is, a folder is selected
with background magenta.

I have tried nearly all combination that may produce a different
behavior, from beginning to end, end to beginning,
from middle too beginning, from middle to end.
The first character typed replace highligthed text.
