Visual Studio Shortcut: Go To Definition

Go To Definition: F12

Go To Definition enables quick navigation to the definition of a symbol.

  • If the symbol is a type, then navigation is to the type; this also works for var.
  • If the symbol is on a concrete type, then navigation is to the concrete definition.
  • If the symbol is on an interface or abstract type, then navigation is to that interface or abstraction.
    • Next week I will post how to navigate to an implementation.

This is very similar to Peek Definition, except now your navigation is to a new tab.
