Go to Matching Brace in Visual Studio


Is there a way in Visual Studio 2008 to go from a closing brace to its opening brace? I've found a fair amount of stuff about highlighting the brace, but nothing about moving the cursor to it.

Best Solution

I found this for you: Jump between braces in Visual Studio:

Put your cursor before or after the brace (your choice) and then press CTRL + ]. It works with parentheses ( ), brackets [ ] and braces { }. From now on you don’t need to play Where’s Waldo? to find that brace.

On MacOS, use CMD + SHIFT + \
