Answer:

Although the question is related to switching between design and xml views, many people may be looking for or interested in how to switch between related XML and Java files. This can be achieved in Android Studio, using the Related Symbol... navigation key mapping.

Depending on your settings and operating system the keyboard shortcut will vary, but you can find out what yours is by looking in Settings -> Keymap -> Main menu / Navigate / Related Symbol...

Otherwise try the following keys:

  • Ctrl + Alt + F7
  • Ctrl + Alt + Home
  • Meta + Ctrl + Up

Answer:

I wanted to switch to the selected View in question. None of the answers did that. So, here we go:

CTRL + B

Period.

Answer:

On Android Studio 2.3+, one can use the shortcut Ctrl+T.
