Visual Studio 2003 and 2005 Default Keyboard Shortcuts Cheat Sheet

My first book, C# 4.0 How-To is now shipping! If you like tips you can use, check it out!

I wanted to have a quick-reference sheet available to help me learn the Visual Studio keyboard commands. Surprisingly, I couldn’t find a handy printable reference. So I made one. It doesn’t contain ALL the shortcuts. For that, you can go to the online reference¬†or this code that prints out all of your existing shortcuts.

If you just want a two-page reference sheet, handy to print front-to-back, to help you learn the shortcuts, download the PDF I created.

A screen shot of it…
