Visual Studios 6.0 shortcut keys that matter to me

At work I end up living within Visual Studios 6.0 for long durations. These below are probably my most used short-cuts.

Failed compile?

F4 - Move to next Error (and highlight in the IDE)

Auto-Complete
ALT+SPACE

Structure members
CTRL+SPACE

View function parameters

CTRL+SHIFT+SPACE

Auto-indent current selection
ALT+F8

Callgraphs
ALT+F12

Brace Matching
Ctrl-}

Or if you want do 'know it all'

To display keyboard shortcuts

  1. From the Help menu, choose Keyboard Map and perform one or more of the following actions:
    • Click Category, Editor, Command, Keys, or Description to sort the keyboard shortcut list alphabetically in different ways.

    • Click the Printer button to print a copy of the list.

    • Click the Copy button to copy the list to the Clipboard so you can paste it into a word processor or other text editor.

    • Click the drop-down menu to filter the list to view either All Commands, Bound Commands, or by menu.
