    Press tab TWICE, NOT once. Took me another 5 min googling to find this out. Did it change in 2015? I'm using 2012.

    Thanks for the tips, those were great! Just a suggestion for all, get the VsVim plugin and learn to navigate using vim keyboard shortcuts, it greatly increased my productivity!

    1 Book mark is interesting, I will try to keep that.
    2 Snippet you can find some snippet free eidtor and add some more snippet or change the exist snippet to your coding style.
    I also hope that Mic change the comment to toggle instead of insert and remove separately.

    Amazing Tips, going to help a great deal both (just wish I had found this a day ago, before I handed in first assignment)

    thanks, i have a question for XAML if you know. when i type Height="0", the second " gets autocompleted while the caret is still between 0 and " like so ="0|" but then how do i escape the quotes to keep typing besides Right Arrow Key? tab etc. doesn't work! and the annoying thing is if i type " again, things like sublime text will overwrite and move on, but xaml adds another " and becomes "0"" 🙁

    Use F2 to rename something including bookmarks.
