My Favourite Visual Studio Shortcuts

Actually, this includes ReSharper shortcuts as well.

Visual Studio & ReSharper

  • CTRL + SHFT + N: Go to a file (ReSharper IDEA shortcut)
  • CTRL + -: Go to a previous cursor location. This is very handy when you copy and paste the same text to multiple rows, as it remember your cursor location before you paste the text
  • CTRL + SHFT + Space: show the list of parameters in a method
  • Alt + Insert: generate code, especially for generating equality members for your type
  • SHFT + F9: Add the variable to the quick watch. Only available in debug mode

Windows 7 Bootcamp on mac Shortcut Keys

# Hash

It should be a simple thing, but dear!, I coundn’t find it. On Mac, you can use alt + 3. The combination is weird enough, but on windows 7, I couldn’t type it at all, … well until tonight.

Simply, it is right alt + 3. ##### hahaha.

To summarise all the  key combinations

  • #: right alt + 3
  • Del: fn + <-
  • Home: fn + left arrow
  • End: fn + right arrow
  • Begging of a page: fn + up arrow
  • End of a page: fn + down arrow

Hope this post helps you out of your frustration with Windows 7 on Mac bootcamp.
