The VS.NET IDE’s Command Window: A Tutorial

Most developers use Command Window as an interactive debug window, but there’s so much more that can be done with it.

  1. You can create aliases for commands that are used from the menu, shortcut, or toolbar buttons. For example, suppose you want to create an alias to open Solution Explorer. You would type:
    alias vs View.SolutionExplorer

    This creates the alias vs, which you can use to launch the Solution Explorer.

  2. Suppose you are trying to create class files through menus. Typing the following creates the alias: nf
     alias nf File.NewFile 

    You can use it as follows:

     nf NewClass.cs
