Favorite Keyboard Shortcut

Posted 25 March 2017 - 01:45 PM

What's your favorite keyboard shortcut? Or a shortcut you appreciate and think is under utilized.

I like ctrl + right arrow, left arrow to move through words or with shift to highlight it.
Also recently found out about shift + tab to tab up.

alt+click/drag to highlight horizontal segments of text in Notepad++ and SQL Studio

super+arrow to dock windows is another good one

but ctrl-x cut is probably my most used all-time favorite and appreciated.

Used to be Ctrl, E, D (auto format the file)

Now with an update to VS it's Ctrl, E, K.
