Thanks hongmeig! Open File the fastest way
OMG I’ve been looking for this since November 2005. I often felt like everyone was in on a joke but me and that everyone knew this was built into Visual Studio except for me.
Press ctrl-/Â (This take you to the ‘find in files’ textbox in the toolbar)Â Now type “>of ” and start typing the name of the file which you wish to open. You will get a drop down of files which match. You can arrow down and press enter.
FINALLY a keyboard only “open file” which doesn’t require Alt-F-O (or ctrl-O) and arrow navigation of the directory heirarchy. I’m almost as happy as the time I discovered dictionary word completion in vim.
