Visual Studio and Visual Web Developer 2010 Tips and Tricks

John Avis by | May 22, 2012 | ASP.NET Web Forms

Here's a few shortcuts that you may not be familiar with in Visual Studio 2010 and Visual Web Developer 2010...

Pressing Ctrl+C on a line without selecting any characters copies the entire line to the clipboard. Ctrl+X does the same but cuts instead of copies.

If you have an entire line in the clipboard, no matter where the cursor is positioned in a line, when you paste the line will be instered above the current line.

Ctrl+D puts the cursor in the Find textbox in the toolbar.
(Note: sadly this no longer works in VS 2012, but Ctrl+F has been improved)

Ctrl+G allows you to enter a line number to immediately go to.

Ctrl+F is for find, and Ctrl+H is for replace. To go straight to find in files, or replace in files holden down the shift key too (eg. Ctrl+Shift+F or H).

Use chords to quickly comment and uncomment code. Ctrl+K, Ctrl+C (hold down Control, press and release K, press and release C, release Control) comments, and Ctrl+K, Ctrl+U uncomments the selected text or current line if no text is selected.

Do you know any other tips and tricks?
