Block Diagram Should Open if Holding the <CTL> Key while Clicking a VI from in the Project Explorer Window

Status: Duplicate

On occasion one needs to open the source code for a closed VI. The Project explorer window appears to be a good access point for browing and opening VIs. However, clicking on the VIs opens the front panel only. It would be great to have the ability to open the block diagram if one holds the <CTL> key while clicking a VI on the project explorer window.
