Visual Studio Keybinds Front-End Engineers Use
Below are a few different keybinds I use on a regular basis. I'm sure that these will change in the future once Windows 8 launches and every developer will have Visual Studio 2011 in their hands!
|Control + ,||Go To File - When you're working on a large code base, it's easier to just navigate to the file.|
|Control + Shift + F||Search Solution - Quickly find any string in the solution or project|
|Control + M -> L||Expand all braces - When opening up certain files that have collapsed views|
|Control + Shift + B||Build Solution|
|Control + Pause/Break||Stop Build|
|Control + W (custom keybind)||Close currently opened file|
|Control + K -> D||Format document (braces, alignment, etc)|
|Control + Shift + S||Save all documents in solution|
I thought I'd share out a few of the keybindings I use on a day-to-day basis in Visual Studio that help me be productive.
Good luck and have fun,
