Visual Studio Tip: Get Back to Where You Once Belonged

You're working with a variable, property, method or class and you need more information about it. If you hover your mouse over the item's name, IntelliSense displays the information for you. But when you need more information or, especially, if you want to make some changes to the item, clicking on the item's name and pressing F12 will take you to it.

When you're done making your changes, you probably want to go back to that original code. Pressing Control_- (<Ctrl> minus) will take you there (officially known as navigate backward or BrowsePrevious). If Control_- doesn't take you back to where you want to go immediately, it's only because it will stop at some other places where you rested between when you pressed F12 and where you are now. Just keep pressing Control_- and you'll eventually get back to where you want to be.
