C-x C-j runs the command dired-jump
  which is an interactive compiled Lisp function in `dired-x.el'.
It is bound to C-x C-j.
(dired-jump &optional OTHER-WINDOW)

Jump to dired buffer corresponding to current buffer.
If in a file, dired the current directory and move to file's line.
If in Dired already, pop up a level and goto old directory's line.
In case the proper dired file line cannot be found, refresh the dired
buffer and try again.

Hope this helps,
allan
