Restore it to what application?

If you are using  mc for a file manager,  you can enter the path for 
the active window on the command line.

If you want to change the location to open a file in Kate just enter 
the path in the top location box.  You have to enter the file name  
in the Location box.  The top box is also a file chooser,  
enter /usr/ for example and you can choose directories that appear. 
Enter a  ~  and you will be changed to your home directory.  I find 
it almost as fast as typing.
