Keyboard shortcuts for traversing Code in Visual Studio

Wednesday, June 25, 2008

The feature has probably been around for years but I just discovered it the other day and already find indispensable.

If you are traversing through code and use the "Go to Definition", Visual Studio offers Back and Forward History similar to a Web browser so you can jump back and forth between code files and positions without scrolling. This is a very useful feature especially if you work with code that is unfamiliar and/or many levels deep.

Keyboard Shortcut:

Back: Ctrl + Minus
Forward Ctrl + Shirt + Minus
