I’m a keyboard kind of guy. I hate it when I have to put my hands on the mouse – it
slows me way down. So it should be no surprise that I’m a fan of emacs – keystrokes
for everything. Still, I tend to use VS.NET, because it’s got a bunch of stuff that
I can’t get (yet) in emacs, like Intellisense and integrated debugging.
As a result, I’ve made an effort to learn VS.NET shortcut keys. I find myself often
pointing these out to fellow developers, especially when I’m suffering, watching them
laboriously navigate the menu system or type with one hand. Here are my favorites.
Some of these have already made the blogging rounds, but hopefully you’ll find at
least one gem in here
Those are the main ones that I use day-to-day. There are many, many more – I find
it really useful to browse through the Tools->Customize->Keyboard dialog every
once in a while, looking for good ones (the keyboard shortcuts show up in “Shortcut(s)
for selected command”).
