Today’s tip of the day comes from Shawn’s post on the Find Combo Box. These tips will work on both Visual Studio .NET 2003 and Visual Studio 2005.

  • Goto a line – type the line number and press Ctrl-G
  • Goto a file – type the name of the file and press Ctrl+Shift+G
  • Set a breakpoint on a function – type the name of the function and press F9
  • Get help – type the keyword and press F1

And using command aliases…

See http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/vsintro7/html/vxgrfpredefinedcommandlinealiases.asp for the complete list.

What other command aliases should go in this list that people like to use?

Happy Editing!
