    I'm converting VS2003 to VS2013. Everything is done, but when go to definition, it opens object browser instead of code view.

    Any idea?

    You might want to consider checking out this listing of all of the Visual Studio 2013 short-cuts, as they likely have changed and expanded significantly since Visual Studio 2003. One of the major changes was the introduction of more specific contextual short-cuts, meaning that F12 might do something in one section and do something else in another (which could be what you are experiencing).

    Can you elaborate on exactly what type of file that you are in and where you want to go / what you want to see from there?

    It require to invoke from web to data access layer. It's easier if can point to the data access layer, so I can know which stored procedure it's referring to.

    Can you please advise?

    Hi SinLing,

    1. On the Tools menu, click Options.
    2. Expand Environment, and then click Keyboard.
    3. Select Visual C# 2005 from the Apply the following application keyboard mapping scheme drop-down list and click Reset.
