When teaching SOLIDWORKS we stress that there are a multitude of ways of doing something. That for one, when it comes to navigating the 3D environment around your design has a just a few.
1. Keyboard short cuts
2. Arrow Keys
3. View menu
4. View flyout
5. and many more.
One of those "many more" is the View Selector. With SOLIDWORKS 2015 it has been enhanced to have its very own short cut outside to the Orientations toolbar and flyout menus. But holding the control key and hitting the spacebar can bring up the View Selector by itself.
