Go To File

Navigate | Go To File

This command lets you quickly find and open any file within the current solution.

Start the search

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

Go to a file in the current solution

  1. Press Ctrl+Shift+N or choose Navigate | Go to File... from the main menu. Alternatively, you can press Ctrl+Shift+A, start typing the command name in the popup, and then choose it there.

  2. In the Enter file name popup that appears, start typing the item name. As you type, the lookup list narrows down, suggesting names that match the entered substring.

    If you have a full or a relative path to a solution file in the clipboard — for example, if you copied it from a CLI server — you can paste the path to the input field of the popup.

  3. To specify a line in the searched file, type it after a : (colon).

  4. Optionally, select Include non-solution files or press Ctrl+Shift+N to include external files and folders to the search results.

Search for files with compound names

Case-insensitive CamelHumps is supported here: for example, you can easily find LocalElementConflictSearcher.cs by typing "LecS".

You can also use wildcards when specifying the file name: '*' (asterisk) represents zero or more characters; '+' (plus) represents one or more characters.
