Today I was really frustrated trying to use the search on Visual Studio, I was searching for something I was sure it was somewhere in the code, but Visual Studio didn't find anything.
I searched again and again thinking that maybe I checked some 'don't show any results" checkbox, I even started to believe that that piece of code I was looking for didn't exist, even though I saw it a thousand times, fortunately I decided to read what was written in the search results window:
Then I consulted Dr Google who lead me to many forums and blogs and found that the solution to this is to press Ctrl+C and Ctrl+Pause, and when I tried this it worked like charmed.
Still I'm curious to know:
- What the hell does Ctrl+C and Ctrl+Pause do?
- Since there is no official information about this well-known old bug, how did the first person discover such a combination?
- If some developer at microsoft created an event for this combination to solve the problem, why didn't he do what solves the problem right away when the problem arrives?
