Double-click a node in the File Structure window to navigate to the declaration of the selected member. Moreover, from the context menu you can find usages and apply refactorings.

Various "Go To ..." features such as: Go to Class, Go to Symbol, File Structure, and so on work for VB.NET as well.

Search Everywhere lets you navigate to types, symbols, files, recent files, as well as run configurations, actions, tool windows, and preferences.

Find usages help you locate all usages of namespaces, types, methods, and so on in your source code. Applying the Find Usages feature is the quickest way to find all code usages in the solution.
