Navigating to File Path

On this page:


It may be helpful to open a file in a file manager (for example, in the Windows Explorer, if Windows is your OS), or the Finder. IntelliJ IDEA 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.
    ij navigateToFilePath

    The file manager shows the selected file or directory.

Viewing file path

To just view the path to a file, place the mouse pointer over the tab where the file is opened.
