Run anything

Run Anything is a quick way to launch run/debug configurations, scripts, and open recent solutions. It also helps you use proper command syntax by generating suggestions as you type. When you call a command, Run Anything delegates the further work to the appropriate tools.

Open the Run Anything popup

Press Ctrl twice.

Alternatively, click the Run Anything icon on the toolbar.

The icon is not shown by default. To add it, open the Settings/Preferences dialog Ctrl+Alt+S, go to Appearance and Behavior | Menus and Toolbars, expand the Main Toolbar node, and add the Run Anything action, for example, below Search Everywhere. See Menus and toolbars for details.

Launch a run/debug configuration

  1. Start typing the run/debug configuration name and select it from the suggestions list:

  2. To debug a run configuration, hold Shift when launching it.

Open a recent solution

You can also quickly reopen a recent project from the Run Anything popup. Search for the solution by the name or type open to shorten the list of suggestions, then select the required project from the list, and press Enter:
