VS TnT #12: fastest way to switch between design and code views

What's the fastest way to switch between UI designers and code in VS?
TnT: Need to jump to the code IMMEDIATELY, hit F7. Need to jump back to the GUI/UI/HTML/XAML/etc, hit SHIFT+F7
Shortcut: F7 and SHIFT+F7
Da "Peter" Version (aka, ya, ya, da verbose one)
When you're in Visual Studio, how do YOU goto the code? Do you goto the Solution Explorer, find the file, right mouse cli.....(already bored aren't you? LOL)...click the file, select View Code, or hit the right triangle and then double click the .CS file?
Ya, THERE'S A FASTER WAY! After you find the file in Solution Explorer, hit F7, BOOM!!!! You're looking at the code! Want to jump to the UI, hit SHIFT+F7 and you're looking at the right designer and you can immediately change properties/add html, etc!
Now that you know how to flip back'n'forth quickly between code and UI designer, it's time to grab a coffee and get coding!
