Switch Between Open Files With File Dropdown List

| Comments

You can switch between currently opened files and windows in Visual Studio with Ctrl + Tab and Ctrl + Shift + Tab. The interface can become pretty noisy sometimes when you have too many files open. An alternative way to do this is by clicking on the dropdown arrow at the extreme right of the files tab and seeing a list of all the open files. You can also open the dropdown by pressing Alt + Ctrl + Down keys. If you are looking for a specific file, you can start typing the name of the file, and it should get selected. You can also close muliple files easily in the list.
