Type to find in Content Browser Folder View (like Windows Explorer)

Just to preface, this works great in the main Content Browser view. It would be nice if this functionality was in the Folder view. This is a feature request for the folder view (pictured below)

In Windows Explorer (and most Windows friendly programs) users can locate folders/files by typing in the name of that file/folder with the keyboard. If there’s a match to what the user is typing in, it’ll locate that file. It’s a lot quicker and cleaner at times than using Search.

Here’s a gif showing how it works in Windows. I have a program that displays what I’m typing in the lower right. After a period of time (not sure what it is in Windows), the current entry of what was typed is ‘erased’.
