I'm trying to learn how to use the IDA pro debugger (having used Visual Studio's C++ debugger for years) and I'm struggling to find how to switch the code/asm view back to the current instruction that debugger broke on?

Similar to the "Show next statement" button in Visual Studio:

PS. Here's my situation. Say, I broke on some instruction and then using IDA's "graph view" navigated away from that instruction. How do I go back?

You can navigate back to the previous position simply by pressing ESC. If you want to back to the current IP address, just press the right mouse button a select Jump to IP

. Jump To IP

Alternatively you can press G and set EIP as address.

  • Oops. Thanks. I should've thought about it myself.

    As a side note... do they rename it to "Jump to RIP" for x64 process :)
