I am using Visual Studio for many years, but I have to admit this came as a total surprise: the Find combo box in Visual Studio is more than just what the name says.
Besides searching for files, you can use it for opening files, creating new files, setting breakpoints (in a smart way), going to a line, getting help, editing lines, and many, many others. You can do all these by typing ‘>’ followed by a command name and a space and then additional values.
For instance, if you want a quick finding of files, you can type >of filename and it will show in the combo all the files that match the typed string.
Another example: if you want to jump to line 250 in the currently opened file type >GotoLn 250.
