Navigate To window case sensitivity and insensitivity

9 Jan 2012 1 mins Visual Studio

Visual Studio’s Navigate To window (Ctrl+,) is a very fast way to navigate in your files, classes etc. Few days ago I accidentally found a “feature”. I always started typing with first letter in upper case and after few characters I messed it up by typing letter in wrong case and missing object I was looking for. I was trying to find a way to make it do the search case insensitively.

And it’s actually pretty easy. As long as you type using lower case, it’s case insensitive. Using upper case once, turns it to case sensitive mode. No settings needed. Easy. I like it.
