Did you know… The Object Browser has a navigate forward and navigate back? – #211

Another set of buttons on the Object Browser toolbar belongs to Navigate Forward and Navigate Back.


The pages you visit within the object browser are saved as a MRU (Most Recently Used).

This alone is somewhat exciting, but what really makes it exciting is a keyboard shortcut!

The commands are View.ObjectBrowserForward and View.ObjectBrowserBack. If you are using the Visual Basic Development Settings, you’ll see that the keyboard shortcuts are Alt+Minus for Back and Shift+Alt+Minus for Forward.  If you use the forward and back functionality frequently and are not using the Visual Basic Settings, go to Tools – Options – Environment – Keyboard, and manually set the keybindings there.
