Visual Studio RRS feed

  • Question

  • How does one set the display properties for visual studio?  I have looked everywhere in the menus and settings and have been unable to find how to do this. 

    The only way I am able to do that is to use the touch screen (finger/thumb) on my tablet.  However, I almost always am using VS on a large monitor that is not touch screen.

    Also, a very handy feature  ctrl - mouse wheel to zoom text area in/out.

  • Yet one more way, look at the bottom of the editor, you will see a drop down e.g.

    I say, do the least amount of work to get the job done, mouse person, the above or Les's method for keyboard.

    And in case you don't know about it, you can save your layouts.

  • Thanks.  This has been an irritant to me for a long time.  I especially like the control button mouse wheel!!!
