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…

    Ctrl + W in VS 2005 is taken over by Window as
    now you have

    Ctrl + W,C display class view
    Ctrl + W,D code definition window

    Good job on the cheat sheet. If you don’t mind me asking, what did you use to typeset it? I’m wanting to make a similar cheat sheet for the emacs keyboard mapping scheme.

    I actually used the beta of Word 2007 to do it–send me an e-mail via this site, and I can send you the Word document…if I can still find it somewhere…
