Visual Studio Tips: Copy/Paste multiple snippets in quicker way

In this quick post, I just want to share a very useful tip on Visual Studio which has been helping me numerous times since I learned it. While developing an application using visual studio, you may need to copy multiple words/lines/snippets which are not continuous on that form/page. With current facility of Windows(how far I know) we can only paste the content which is copied to the clipboard last time only. So, to copy and paste multiple snippets you have to copy a single snippet and then paste it on some other page/form and then again repeat the same process until you are done.

But with the feature I am talking about, you can copy up to 20 snippets to the clipboard and then can traverse through each snippet copied to the clipboard. This is called Clipboard Ring.

To copy the snippets just copy them with your own way like pressing CTRL + C or right clicking with your mouse etc.

Now, you can paste/traverse through copied snippets by pressing CTRL + Shift + V and CTRL+ Shift + Insert. or, Clicking Edit ->Cycle Clipboard Ring.


Thanks for reading !!!
