Go To File

ReSharper | Navigate | Go To File

This command navigates you to any file within the current solution .

Note that this command works in global scope, i.e. you do not need to bring your focus to the editor to invoke it.

To go to a file in the current solution

  1. In the main menu, choose ReSharper | Navigate | Go To File or press Ctrl+Shift+N.
  2. In the Enter file or folder name pop-up that appears, start typing the item name. As you type, the lookup list narrows down, suggesting names that match the entered substring.
  3. Do one of the following:
    • Click on the desired item to open it in the editor.
    • Select the desired item by pressing Up and Down and then press Enter to open it in the editor.
    • To view and analyze the list of matched items in the Find Results window, click Show in Find Results /help/img/dotnet/2016.3/ThemedIcon.SearchResults.Screen.[Gray].png or press + on the numeric keypad.

You can narrow down the list of items using CamelHumps. It is case-insensitive, so there is no difference between 'iconfse' and 'IConfSe'.

If you want to navigate to a file in a particular folder, you can type parts of the file path and split them using spaces, slashes or backslashes. Consider the example below:
You can also use wildcards when specifying the name: '*' (asterisk) represents zero or more characters; '+' (plus) represents one or more characters. To specify a line in the searched file, type it after a ':' (colon).

ReSharper can optionally remember the last input that you used to find something with Go to Everything/Type, Go To File, and Go to Text actions. To enable this behavior, select Remember last search on the Environment | Search and Navigation page of ReSharper options. When this option is selected, ReSharper will also use your selection in the editor as the search string. For example, you can select a file name in a string and then press Ctrl+Shift+N to search for files in your solution that match this name.
