If you want to get directly into a folder, and you know its name, you can type c:\foldername, where foldername is the name of your folder.
And you can do precisely the same thing in the address bar of File Explorer.  It acts very much like the address bar in a web browser, but not for the web.

If you hit ALT + D in File Explorer you're thrown to the address bar and it's ready for you to type whatever folder location you wish, e.g., C:\Windows, and will promptly open that folder when you hit enter after doing so.

Many people seem to resist using the Quick Access feature of File Explorer, but for folders you frequently use it becomes almost a godsend once you're used to using it.  Being able to pin (and, of course, unpin) folders from Quick Access can really speed direct access up and save tons of typing, too.
