It’s time for an old favorite from the Visual Studio 2005 days…

Remember How to search using the Ctrl+D Window from one of the earlier tips?  Now let’s have a little more fun…

Press Ctrl+D to go to the Find Combo Box and then…

  • Goto a line – type the line number and press Ctrl+G (i like showing this off as how you can do a "go to line" without popping up the go to dialog box) 
  • Goto a file – type the name of the file (either in your project or on the INCLUDE path)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 to continue from yesterday’s tip on command aliases

Thanks to ShawnFa over on the .NET Security Blog for the tip!
