Visual Studio Hacks posted a new “Ask the Pros” article detailing some of the pros’ favorite keyboard shortcuts. Check it out here. There are quite a few good shortcuts in there, like the Comment and Uncomment code blocks (
Ctrl-K-U respectively). Some of my new favorites have to do with additional functionality provided by snippets in Visual Studio 2005, specifically the
Edit.SurroundWith command, which is
Ctrl-K-S by default. It makes it a cinch to add code to new regions, much like the Visual Studio 2003 Region add-in. As the article says, a nice way to learn more shortcuts is to check them out in Visual Studio for yourself - under Tools, Options, and Keyboard.
Try them yourself and become a true Keyboard Ninja!
