Ctrl+- (Ctrl+dash) to jump back to last modified position

The MS Visual Studio IDE has a neat feature of keeping a stack of locations where edits have occurred. Ctrl+- (Ctrl+dash) pops that stack, jumping back to the previously modified location. Pressing Ctrl+- repeatedly keeps popping the stack, even across multiple files, essentially rewinding through your edit location history.
It would be nice if N++ had something similar, so that we could make a change somewhere (e.g., at line 100), search for something and make another change (e.g., at line 200), then hit Ctrl+- to jump back to the previously modified location (e.g., back to line 100), where we could continue similar edit/search/jump-back operations.
I would prefer if such a feature did not jump back across files, but kept a separate edit location stack for each file. The stack would not have to be very large, perhaps as short as the last 20 or so locations per file.
(Note that we are not talking about the Ctrl+Keypad- key, which reduce the display font size, but the dash character in the top row of the main QWERTY keyboard.)
