Finding the matching brace in Visual Studio

Visual Studio is a well known IDE for Application development. Coding for applications often involves writing large chunks of code. If you are following procedural or object oriented programming you would definitely be writing a lot of functions or methods. And if those functions contain loops or nested loops than you would certainly come to a point where you don’t know where a function or a loop starts or ends. More so if you have a long function it would be hard to know the beginning or the ending.

Visual Studio has a shortcut that tells you the matching braces. For Instance if you are on an opening brace for a function it would point you to the closing brace by using the short keys and vice-versa.

So, the keyboard shortcut is

ctrl }
