The secret back-to-edit hotkey

Thursday, June 2nd, 2011

Just a tiny trick today.

When you’re programming, you’re often…

  • typing something
  • Then you browse through the same file, look for something
  • copy something
  • And now you want to get back ┬áto the place that you previously edited.

There’s a secret hotkey (actually a sequence) for that which works in most editors: Ctrl+Z, Ctrl+Y.

Works in Visual Studio, Word, text editors, etc.
