Search and Execute Actions Using Quick Launch

| Comments

One of my favorite features in Visual Studio 2012 is Quick Launch. If you focus in the Quick Launch box in the top right corner of Visual Studio using your mouse or Ctrl + Q, you can start typing and it’ll show you the list of matching options, templates and menus.

You can also search in specific categories by prefixing the search string with @.
