How to Quickly Open Files


In this short video we look at how we can quickly open files using PHPStorm. This is super handy when navigating about on anything other than a tiny code base.

The shortcut to remember is either ctrl + shift + n (Windows / Linux) or shift + cmd + o (Mac)

Aside from that one being a little basic and well known, there is also shift (double pressed) which will open up any file based on method names inside that file. Very handy, if a little more obscure.

Lastly we look at how we can use the colon to jump to a specific line in a specific file. It's very handy when tracing errors or navigating through some large and unwieldy files.
