In Visual Studio, when a function is prefixed with __super::, then the GOTO fails to take you to the correction function. Instead, it opens a context list of functions to choose from.

If I press F12 in Visual Studio, then it takes me to the correct function.

Having to use 2 different shortcuts is inconvenient.

Any chance this feature can be incorporated?

Can you please try the following simple code sample, and see if you get the same results as I do. I tested this using VS2022 and VA 2488.0 I have described what Alt-G is doing for me in the comments:

class BaseClassForSuper
{
public:
	virtual void SuperAltGTarget() { }
};
	
class ChildClassForSuper : public BaseClassForSuper
{
public:
	virtual void SuperAltGTarget() { }
	void testingSuperAltG();
};
	
void ChildClassForSuper::testingSuperAltG()
{
	SuperAltGTarget(); // Alt-G here goes directly to child class
	__super::SuperAltGTarget(); // Alt-G here goes directly to base class
}
