    I installed a new visual studio 2015 on my computer.But found that the "tab" key behavior become very strange:

    1.I type public string Name following a "{" then vs will complete the "}" automatically.Then I type"get;set;" in the "{}" then want to type the "tab"key to get out of the "{}" and come to the end of the line.But when i enter the tab key,it select the next line!!!

    How can i change this behavior?
