Visual Studio IDE Shortcut Keys

The Visual Studio integrated development environment (IDE) includes several pre-defined keyboard shortcut schemes. When you start Visual Studio for the first time and select your settings, the associated schemes are automatically set. Thereafter, by using the keyboard options page in the Options dialog box, you can choose from additional schemes and you can also create your own keyboard shortcuts.
