Wait, CTRL+P opens files in other IDEs? That seems so strange to me. The only thing I think of with that keyboard shortcut is print.

That said, I don't think I ever used a shortcut to open files before though I can't say that I've needed to print source code either so... 🤷‍♂️

Yeah, in all the other IDEs I've used - IntelliJ, VS Code, Sublime, Atom... Thanks for the comment!

Consistency with other IDEs withstanding, I feel like CTRL+O would be more appropriate as we have CTRL+S for saving. Though we do have CTRL+V for pasting which seems kinda strange given that argument (letter matching action).

A friend of mine mentioned something to me a while back about shortcuts for media players. I think it was that most media players have [Space] to play/pause except I think YouTube Music (though proper YouTube did).

I think I was misleading, in other IDEs CTRL + P is like search solution / project for a file / class. In VS CTRL+O brings up the computer's file explorer. Thanks for commenting!
