VS Code Keyboard Reference Sheets

The Visual Studio IDE (integrated development environment) is a software program for developers to write and edit their code. Its user interface is used for software development to edit, debug and build code. Visual Studio Code lets you perform most tasks directly from the keyboard.

Microsoft Visual Studio is an integrated development environment from Microsoft. It is used to develop computer programs, as well as websites, web apps, web services, and mobile apps.

Keyboard rules

Each rule consists of:

  • A key that describes the pressed keys.
  • A command containing the identifier of the command to execute.
  • An optional when clause containing a boolean expression will be evaluated depending on the current context.

Chords (two separate keypress actions) are described by separating the two keypresses with a space. For example, Ctrl+K Ctrl+C.

When a key is pressed:

  • The rules are evaluated from bottom to top.
  • The first rule that matches, both the key and in terms of when is accepted.
  • no more rules are processed.

  • if a rule is found and has a command set, the command is executed.
