Cycle Through Clipboard Ring

| Comments

Ever copy some code to the clipboard, only to copy something else over it before you get a chance to paste the original code. Don’t worry! Visual Studio has your back. Just press Ctrl + Shift + V and you can cycle through the last 20 items you copied to your clipboard. This feature has been there at least since Visual Studio 2003, but a lot of people still don’t know about it.


Using the Clipboard Ring

Use SqlSmash to write maintainable SQL scripts, understand code faster and navigate around easily in SSMS.
