DO NOT POST SUBSCRIPTIONS, KEYS OR ANY OTHER LICENSING INFORMATION IN THIS FORUM

Hello when using Microsoft's free Visual Studio Code (and the PowerShell plugin they also produce) when in the function explorer pane you can right click and select 'go to definition' as you can with your product, but they also have a 'peak' definition meaning rather than leaving the place where you are in the code (let's say line 700) then having to remember the line number in order to go back to it (as go to definition takes you away to the function, which is fine if that is what you wanted to do) 'peak' simply expands a window to show you the code for that function, then when you release the mouse you can carry on typing at the point in the code where you was working.

unless I missed it I did not see a keyboard shortcut to take you back to the line of code you where at before you select go to definition, is there such an option or keyboard short cut please?
in which case 'peak' definition would be very useful indeed, and therein another reason for potential customers to buy a license

Thanks very much
Ernie

Currently, there isn't a keyboard shortcut to return to the previous place before going to the definition, but there is a keyboard shortcut for returning to your previous edit which is Ctrl + E.

I'll file a feature request for a back button/peak-like feature, thank you for your suggestion.
