I prefer column view as it allows me to navigate folders using the arrow keys to open and close them. I find that, however, in 10.9, when I open Documents from the desktop with shift+command+D, I hear "Browser" and am not able to navigate. The arrow keys say nothing and I sometimes hear "scroll area" and nothing else. If I open the home folder, though and navigate to documents from there, this problem does not occur. It only occurs when attempting to open the documents folder from the desktop. Has anyone else experienced this issue?
It has to be with column view enabled; the problem does not occur for me using list view.
