Hi Anast,

I tried opening my files via `a` which runs dired-find-alternate-file. However it still doesn't
bring back the dired buffer when closing.

regards,

Hi,

When opening a file in dired via RET and close, emacs ends up in a buffer
other than previous dired
buffer. How can I get back to the dired buffer after closing the file buffer
opened by dired?

Hey,

When you open something using RET it replaces the current dired buffer you are on.
Try opening the file up with 'a' (the default).
This opens a new buffer with your selection.

So:
RET     replaces current dired buffer with selection
a       opens a new buffer with selection
