Permanent Bookmarks in VisualStudio.

13 05 2008


In visual studio, we usually use bookmarks for traversing. Ctrl+F2 is used to add/remove bookmark and F2 to traverse between bookmarks. But when you close the file, all bookmarks in that file will be gone. I often blamed visual studio for not proving a bookmark window like the breakpoint window, where i can store permanent bookmarks. But recently i understood I’m mistaken…


Indeed, there is a permanent bookmark window. By pressing Alt+F2 you can access it. The bookmarks you add via this will be kept even after closing the IDE. See the screenshot below.

The funniest thing is, Even after working in the Visual studio 6.0 for years, i didn’t noticed this one yet. And when I asked some of my peers about this, they are also seeing this stuff for the first time. 🙂 What about you guys? Come on, post your comments… Just to know, whether something wrong with my eyes. 😉
