keyboard shortcut for "go back to last edited file" ?

Is there a keyboard shortcut for "go back to last edited file".  So  far I'm only aware of alt-cmd-left arrow. But that takes me  back to the  last edited position.

Regards

Ctrl+Alt+Left-Arrow (or Cmd+Alt+Left-Arrow) actually takes you back to the last cursor position, regardless if you edited the line or not.

Ctrl+Shift+Bakcspace (or Cmd+Alt+Backspace on the Mac I assume) takes you back to Last Edit Location, regardless of file (i.e. it may take you to the same file, or another file).

Ctrl+Tab opens the Switcher. So a single Ctrl+Tab will jump you to the last viewed file, but not necessarily the last edited file. Ctrl+Tab,Tab the second to last viewed file; etc.

Ctrl+E opens a list of recently viewed files, listed in view order (most recent on top).

Ctrl+Shift+E opens a list of recently edited files, listed in edited order (most recent on top). So a sequence of  Ctrl+Shift+E, Enter  would take you back to the last edited file. (Also available via the menu as View > Recently Edited Files.) I do not believe there is an action to go back to the last edited file directly via a single shortcut.

I hope that helps.
