The key to better bindings... the Visual Studio Keyboard Bindings Editor Extension

Visual Studio Gallery - Keyboard Bindings Editor

Keyboard Bindings Editor is an easy to use Visual Studio extension, which allows you to browse, add and remove keyboard bindings to all of the standard Visual Studio commands, as well as commands added by other extensions.


About Extension

The Keyboard Bindings Editor extension for Visual Studio is an easy to use alternative to the existing Visual Studio editor under Tools-->Options...-->Environment-->Keyboard. It provides a more comprehensive interface to filter and navigate to the command you wish to edit the bindings for, displays binding clashes and allows changes in batch.


As a general rule, I don't tweak my key bindings all that often. It's just too much of a pain to keep them in sync across different machines, versions, installs, etc. This is why I always blog about cloud-sync options for VS settings (and I seem to remember seeing some kind of rumor about this recently about VS getting this baked in, but can't find it).

Anyway... If you DO edit your key bindings, this tool looks to make that a little easier and quicker...
