You can Ctrl+Click or use F2. That's faster than the right-click menu.

It jumps to the definition of the function, if it's found it, otherwise to the 
declaration in the header. It goes between those two if you're in either.

Do note that sometimes it hasn't indexed the .cpp file so it will jump to the 
header. This happens sometimes if the .cpp file isn't open in the editor.
