Change Intellisense shortcuts in Visual Studio

The most frustration thing a developer can experience is keyboard shortcuts changing. This happened to me recently when the Ctrl+space shortcut started auto inserting a member instead of showing the List Members box.

Here is how I fixed it.

  1. Open Visual Studio and go to the Tools -> Options -> Environment -> Keyboard.
  2. In the Show commands containing field, type Edit.ListMembers.
  3. In Use new shortcut in select Text Editor
  4. In the Press shortcut keys field, press Ctrl+space or whatever you want it to be.
  5. If the shortcut is already assigned to another command, you will see a warning message. If you want to proceed with the change, click Assign to reassign the shortcut.
Presto! Your sanity is restored.
