Editor tips and tricks in VS.NET

Wrap/Unwrap
If you are in the habit of writing long lines to preserve your code readability, you can toggle word wrap using CTRL + R twice. That way your code is neat and tidy, but can be viewed without moving way out to the end of the line and back (which is a horrible pain) when you need to see what's going on.

press ALT + SHIFT + ENTER That will toggle your view to full screen. Pretty nice.

Pane toggling
