Pre-defined Keyboard Shortcuts

Visual Studio has a number of keyboard shortcuts for different Visual Studio commands and windows.

Keyboard shortcuts are assigned according to different keyboard mapping schemes. Your scheme is set the first time you start Visual Studio. After that you can add schemes and assign new keyboard shortcuts on the Tools / Options / Environment / Keyboard options page.

The following list shows the relationship between settings and keyboard mapping schemes.

  1. Default: used with General Development Settings.

  2. Visual Basic 6: used with Visual Basic Development Settings.

  3. Visual C# 2005: used with Visual C# Development Settings.

  4. Visual C++ 6: used with Visual C++ Development settings.

  5. Visual C++ 2: legacy scheme.

  6. Visual Studio 6: legacy scheme
