Take Advantage of VS.NET’s Permanent Clipboard

Take Advantage of VS.NET’s Permanent Clipboard

It’s convenient to be able to store your most commonly used code snippets in the clipboard ring of your .NET IDE, but you lose them when you close the IDE.

However, there is a way to save the code permanently: drag and drop the text of your snippets into the General section of your ToolBox. Your code will now remain until you delete it from the Toolbox.

This works in both VS 2003 and 2005, but 2005 lets you add custom snippets to the snippet library, organize snippets into categories, and assign a keystroke for any snippet, which is better than dragging one to the Toolbox.
