I've been speaking at user groups and conferences for a long time now. Usually at these short talks I don't get asked much about how I use Visual Studio. But now that I am teaching Silverlight, my students are never shy about asking what I am doing while in Visual Studio. I am often amazed by how people use Visual Studio without learning some of my favorite hotkeys/snippets. Here are some of mine:

Two weeks left before the Silverilght Tour hits Washington, DC for Silverlight 2 and 3! If you want to be ready for the next version of Silverlight, this is the place to be.
