Quick Tip: Show Shortcut Keys in Visual Studio

Customize Toolbars, Options, Show shortcut keys in ScreenTips

Right click in the tool bar area --> choose customize, you get the 'Customize' dialog.

On the 'Options' tab there's a little check box that says "Show shortcut keys in ScreenTips".

Like so:

Customize Toolbars, Options, Show shortcut keys in ScreenTips

This is off by default. But you're like me. At least I think you are. And when you spend much of your life inside an application, you want to learn a few good short cut keys. So check that box!

Of course, to really take it to the next level, use KeyTraino ;-).
