Vim Tip: Using markers

vim_editor Set a marker if you whish Vim to remember a cursor position Use m* to mark current position (use a to z for position names) and then ‘* to move to mark * (again, a to z).

This trick can be very useful when editing a large file (or lots of files) in case you need to quickly edit something and then return to the previous spot.
