@Kirill Me too :) And all the shortcuts are listed in manual page (man mc). –  dhill Apr 2 '12 at 15:58

Newer versions of Midnight Commander use Alt-o (also ESC followed by o) to do this.

Older versions used Alt-o for doing a change directory to the currently highlighted directory, so it will depend on which build you are using.

Version 4.8.3 (at least) now uses Alt-i to switch the other panel to the same folder as the current panel. See man mc for more. –  SabreWolfy Aug 13 '12 at 18:27

AltO opens the directory your cursor is on.

AltI opens the active panel's directory on the other panel.

Tested on MC 4.7
