ReSharper | Navigate | Go To File

Similar to Go to Type, the Go To File command navigates you to any file within

To go to a file in the current solution
  1. On 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 characters in the text field. As you type, the lookup list narrows down, suggesting names that match the entered substring.
  3. Do one of the following:
    • To view the list of found items in the Find Results window, click Show in Find Results or press + on the numeric keypad.
    • To navigate directly to a target item, select its name in the lookup list and press Enter.

Case-insensitive CamelHumps is supported here: for example, you can easily find LocalElementConflictSearcher.cs by typing "LecS". If you want to navigate to a file in a particular folder, you can specify parts of 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; '?' (question mark) represents one or zero characters.


Whenever collecting items to match the specified string takes significant time, ReSharper displays an hourglass icon to the right of your search string. Substantial delays are to be expected when performing search before ReSharper loads completely.
