25 Tips for Visual Studio

Editor's Notes

  1. A number of tips I’ve collected that I pass on to others Surprised how many people don’t know these Magic VisualStudioTips.co.uk Notice a lot are keyboard shortcuts Also hoping to learn from you Anyone used Visual Studio before? I’ve got 25 tips and 25 minutes, so if I do the maths..
  2. More room Less distractions
  3. Might think.. Why would I want to do this? But we read left to right
  4. If you can’t find the file you’re working on in Solution explorer
  5. Nice overview of long files Shouldn’t really be that long right?
  6. Auto complete ctor prop
  7. During a good debugging session, you may have dozens of breakpoints Executing.. And waiting for something Want a fresh start
