I have worked with Visual Studio for many years, and only recently have I realized how big a difference those shortcuts to your coding speed. If you want to be an efficient programmer, and you’re using Visual Studio you should really check out these shortcuts, as they severely improve your time spent. Here are some of the best VS2015 keyboard shortcuts that I have found
Ctrl + . – Opens up Quick Actions (mostly used to fix errors)
Ctrl + F5 – Start without debugging (very useful for console applications)
Ctrl + G – Go to a specific line number in your code
Ctrl + Shift + S – Saves all your projects and documents
Ctrl + Enter – Creates a newline but keeps cursor position
Ctrl + U – Changses selected text to lowercase.
Ctrl + Shift + U – Changses selected text to uppercase.
Shift + Alt + Enter – Toggles full screen mode
F9 – Adds Breakpoint at cursor position
Ctrl + Alt + D – View the Disassembly (JIT) code.
Ctrl + Alt + G – View the CPU register contents.
Visual Studio also has combination Keyboard Shortcuts. This means that you have to use both shortcuts:
Ctrl + K, Ctrl + C – Comments the current line out
Ctrl + K, Ctrl + U – Uncomment the current line
Ctrl + M, Ctrl + O – Collapses all procedures in the current document
Ctrl + M, Ctrl + L – (Un)Collapses all procedures in the current document
Ctrl + K, Ctrl + F – Applies proper indention for selected line of code
