The Quick switcher lets you jump to other notes without leaving your keyboard. The shortcut to invoke it is
Ctrl/Cmd+O. Just start typing, and matching filenames will be selected. Use up and down arrows to navigate the results,
Enter to jump to a result, and
Esc to exit the quick switcher. Holding down
Cmd/Ctrl will cause the note to open in a new pane.
