How do I wrap a selection with an HTML tag in Visual Studio? – Stack Overflow

A very usable keyboard shortcut when working with html in Visual Studio.

Visual Studio 2015 comes with a new shortcut, Shift+Alt+W wraps the current selection with a div. This shortcut leaves the text “div” selected, making it seamlessly changeable to any desired tag. This coupled with the automatic end tag replacement makes for a quick solution. UPDATE This shortcut is available in Visual Studio 2017 as well, but you must have the “ASP.NET and Web Development” workload installed. Example Shift+Alt+W > p > Enter

Turn off Client-side debugging in Visual Studio 2017 for js and typescript

If you prefer to use Chrome’s or IE’s own dev tools to do client-side debugging, the recent update to Visual Studio 2017 RC introduced a setting to disable the IE and Chrome script debugger (this will also prevent Chrome/IE from closing after a debugging session ends). Go to Tools -> Options -> Debugging -> General and turn off the setting Enable JavaScript Debugging for ASP.NET (Chrome and IE).

Missing color syntax highlighting for javascript files in VS2017

I had an issue with Javascript files having no color syntax highlighting in Visual Studio 2017.

I first found this:
https://github.com/Microsoft/TypeScript/issues/14422 
which focused on a TypeScript related problem and didnt help my issue.

I have ReSharper installed, enabling the settings below solved my issue:

To toggle ReSharper syntax highlighting Open the Code Inspection | Settings page of ReSharper options. Use the Color Identifiers check box to enable or disable ReSharper syntax highlighting. Click Save to apply the modifications and let ReSharper choose where to save them, or save the modifications to a specific settings layer using the Save To drop-down list. For more information, see managing and sharing resharper settings.

Visual Studio 2017 not returning to correct line after ctrl click (go to definition) and closing window

For me the problem was connected to ReSharper which already implements this function. Solution was to disable the VS 2017 functionality for ctrl+click. (prefer the ReSharper way with built in decompiling)

Goto options -> Text Editor -> General -> uncheck “Enable mouse click…”

Disable the default vs2017 setting.
