I had to do a little research to remember what this feature is called. It’s the "command line" within Visual Studio that doesn’t require opening the Command Window. Only after doing 5 minutes of searches through our test cases did i realize, "hmm, why don’t i look up the name of the command in tools – options – environment – keyboard" =)
I’m also surprised i haven’t already posted a tip on it. I’ve mentioned it here and there, but finally, here’s to the Ctrl+/ command line thingy:
press Ctrl+/ to reach the command line. The command line is basically the Quick Find Ctrl+D window on the standard toolbar, but with the ‘>’ inserted for you. Of course, you could do Ctrl+D > if you really wanted…
Of course, your mileage may very depending on your keyboard bindings. If that’s the case, go to Tools – Options – Environment – Keyboard to see what Tools.GoToCommandLine is bound to.
