Some other useful tips are:
Ctrl+Home Takes you to the top of the document
Ctrl+End Takes you to the bottom of the document
Ctrl+P Search all files in your project by name. If you then type in @ it searches that file by functions and classes.

I like Ctrl+P and its @, it is very convenient.

There is a shortcut to the Ctrl+P and then @, if you press Ctrl+R, then the @ sign will automatically come.

Also there is another shortcut, Ctrl+; This produces a # in the Ctrl+P menu, and you will be able to search any name in the file.

Any idea if there's a keyboard-based way to navigate the search results page?
