Visual Studio Shortcut: Goto Brace

Goto Brace: Ctrl + ]

I was recently working in a for loop over 200 lines long; it contained a plethora of if/else statements, switch statements, and other loops. At one point, the nesting reached level 4. Navigating and reading this code was great.

One benefit produced by this endeavor was discovering this Visual Studio shortcut. Goto Brace navigates from an opening curly brace to its corresponding closing curly brace and vice versa.
