This is not a new tip, in fact I'm pretty sure I've blogged about it in the past, but the fastest way to open a file is via the "Open Resource" dialog box. Pressing [CTRL]+[SHIFT]+[R] opens the dialog box, which allows you to free form type a search string that will show you all the files that match your search string.
This is extremely handy when you know the name of the file you want to open and have lots of resources or just tons of files in your projects. I deal with several really large projects and this is almost always faster than opening the file via the Navigation View.
