WebStorm 9.0.2 Web Help

Navigating to File Path

On this page:

Overview

It may be helpful to open a file in a file manager (for example, in the Windows Explorer, if Windows is your OS). WebStorm allows you to easily navigate to any part of a file path, right from the editor.

Navigating to a file path

To navigate to a file path from the editor

  1. Hold Ctrl and click the relevant tab in the editor.
  2. In the drop-down list, select the element you need. For example, if you select WEB_IDE_Projects as shown below, the file manager opens forC:\web_ide_projects, with the WEB_IDE_Projects directory selected:
