Searching the Visual Studio Toolbox


Ever want to add a control to the design surface, but you have so many controls that you have a difficult time finding them? I was shown this neat shortcut that has saved me a lot of time over the past few days.

  1. Click on the toolbox or use the Hotkey Alt+Ctrl+x
  2. Start typing the name of the control. The control will be highlighted

  3. If you have multiple controls that match the text, hit Tab to go to the next one.

Simple and easy!
