My most frequently used Resharper and VS.Net
Shortcuts
1. Resharper
ReSharper is a VS.Net Plug-in that gives you solution wide error analysis with lots of refactoring features.
I can say with confidence that my productivity has gone up after I started using this tool and completely addicted to
it.
These are some of the shortcuts I regularly use. In version 4.5 some of these tasks have been given new shortcuts
but the old one still works.
(2.5): Shortcuts from Version 2.5
(4.5): Shortcuts from Version 4.5

2. My favorite VS.Net Shortcuts

Go to last line of Location: Ctrl + minus
Go to next line of Location: Ctrl + Shift + minus
Code View: F7
Designer View: Shift + F7
Close the File: Ctrl + F4
Switch between Tabs: Ctrl + Tab

Code Formatting
Reformat the Code: Ctrl + K Ctrl + F
Comment the Code: Ctrl + K Ctrl + C
Uncomment the Code: Ctrl + K Ctrl + U
Wrap the Code: Ctrl + R Ctrl + R (VS 2003) (or) Ctrl + E Ctrl + E Ctrl + W (later)
Since Ctrl + E is recent files in Resharper, I have set it to Ctrl + R Ctrl + W. Works in
output window also
