Visual Studio Keyboard Shortcuts – the Shortcuts I Find Most Useful

There are quite a number of keyboard shortcuts available in Visual Studio, but of them all I only find some to be useful when developing. So without further ado here they are:

  1. Ctrl + Shift + b – To Build the solution
  2. F5 – To Build and run the solution in debug mode
  3. Ctrl +F5 – Run the solution in release mode
  4. F7 – When Viewing the .ASPX page hitting the F& key will take you to the code-behind
  5. F9 – Toggle a breakpoint
  6. Ctrl + Shift + s – This batch saves all files in the solution
  7. Alt + Shift + enter –  This toggles the code fullscreen mode
  8. Ctrl + A – Selects all text
  9. F11 – Step Into
  10. F10 –  Step Over
  11. Ctrl + z –  Undo Change
  12. Ctrl + y – Re-do Change
  13. Ctrl + Shift + w – View in your default browser
  14. Ctrl + f – Find window
  15. Ctrl + r – Find and replace window
  16. Ctrl + g – Go to a line number
