Visual Studio comes with two commands for navigating among the various things in the task list: View.NextTask and View.PreviousTask.
As we’ve explored more than you ever wanted to know about the task list, you now know that the task list has several categories: User Tasks, Comments, and Shortcuts. These commands will only navigate among items of a given category, so you won’t jump from shortcuts to user tasks.
Note that these commands are not bound to a keyboard shortcut by default in the General Development Settings, so you’ll need to bind them yourself (if using that profile).
Rinse and repeat for View.PreviousTask. For me, I used Ctrl+Alt+N, only because it wasn’t bound to anything in the General Development Settings. For Previous, i highly recommend just adding the Shift key (these keys, shift, alt, ctrl, etc, are called something, and i cannot remember, argh) to whatever you come up with, since any backward navigation usually has "shift" in it.
Also, something else to note, since we had to test for it, is that the Visual Studio Status Bar will update with the name of the Comment when you use View.NextTask or View.PreviousTask.
