This tip is pretty straightforward: Pressing Ctrl+G will pop up the Go To Line dialog box.

But did you know there’s a way to use Ctrl+G without bringing up this dialog box?

  1. Press Ctrl+D to go to the Find combo box on the standard toolbar.
  2. Type in the line number.
  3. Press Ctrl+G. (Note: Do not press Enter; if you do, you’ll search for the number!)

Congrats! You’ve just navigated to the line without the Go To Line window coming up.

You can try to navigate to line 0, but Visual Studio will take you to line 1.

Happy Programming! =)
