Keyboard Shortcuts in Visual Studio

Several pre-defined keyboard shortcut collections are included in Visual Studio. You can change the keyboard shortcuts for most commands, and your changes are automatically saved in your active settings file. You can also export all your current keyboard shortcuts or import another collection. You can view your current keyboard shortcuts at any time, and you can generate a list of those shortcuts so that you can print it.
