5 shortcuts that will instantly boost your production on Visual Studio Code
tiny disclaimer: shortcuts are written for windows. Mac guys will need to translate
I admit. I’m a lazy programmer and if I don’t have to make as many movements to get the same work done, I will take it!
As I start to use VS Code more and more, I want to be as productive as possible. One way of doing this is to minimize having to use the mouse. Here are a few shortcuts and snippets I use when I am coding on Visual Studio Code.
- Change line numbers:
ctrl + g
This is super handy of course as I no longer have to scroll all the way up with my mouse or my arrow key to a line.
2. Switch to another open file:
ctrl + tab
3. New Terminal:
ctrl+ shift + `
4. Comment / Uncomment a code block:
ctrl + /
5. Selecting a particular line:
ctrl + i
I really didn’t want to boggle you down with a lot of shortcuts but if you are interested in seeing a ton more, there is a whole site dedicated to it.
I also use a very popular snippet extension on VSC called JS JSX Snippets
I hope that this small article can instantly boost your productivity. I tried to include some shortcuts that I personally use all the time. I also hope that this is useful for both new users of VSC as well as those with experience.
