F3 goes to the class itself. So if you highlight a type and you press F3, Eclipse should take you to the source code of this class.

Control + Shift + G finds all references of the type in the workspace.

You can use the Alt + left/right arrow to go back and forth.
@girionis mention F3 will taken to your class
aaa a= new aaa();
if you select aaa and f3 it will go to the F3 class

if press ctrl+shift +g  it will show how many place aaa is implemented .

// i see at top the back arrow which is bringing back to my original position where i clicked F3

That is eclipse feature , it will bring back your previous cursor position .

Take any one class do some modification in any place . go to bottom of the class put cursor there , and press arrow  it will take you to the modified place
