Modifying IntelliSense Options

Most IntelliSense options are in effect by default. You can turn off an IntelliSense option by default and invoke it through a menu command or keystroke combination.

Even when an IntelliSense option is on by default, you can explicitly invoke it. You can also change the default key mappings for each option.

Note   If you change your IntelliSense settings, then your new settings will apply to IntelliSense in both the Code Editor and the Immediate Mode Command Window.

To turn IntelliSense options off by default

  1. On the Tools menu, click Options.
  2. Select the Text Editor folder.
  3. Select the folder for the language you want to customize IntelliSense.
  4. Select a property page for the language and clear check boxes for the options that you do not want.

To change default key mappings for IntelliSense options

  1. On the Tools menu, click Options.
  2. Click the Environment folder and then click the Keyboard page.
  3. In the list box, click one of the following:
    • Edit.ListMembers
    • Edit.ParameterInfo
    • Edit.QuickInfo
    • Edit.CompleteWord
