AnswerQuicKeys 3.0 for Windows - Best macro/automation/keyboard shortcut tool there ever was / is Pin

In an earlier post[^] by OriginalGriff, he noted a "feature" of VS2nnn "by mistake" and noted about this being a way to make boilerplates in VS.

You can do this by creating a basic function with a Try/Catch, copy it, paste it into the VS toolbox, rename it accordingly (I use 00_NewFunctTryCatch to cause it to show at the top of the list of Boilerplates, as you noted) then assign a keyboard shortcut, and off ya go!

I also have 00_TryCatch which only puts in a try catch.

Now, if you *REALLY* wanna beef up your entire computer, go get QuicKeys 3.0 for Windows at Startly.com[^]
(NOTE: I have no connection to this biz, other than using their products.)

I've used QuicKeys for 23+ of my programming & daily computer use years, both Mac & Windows. QuicKeys works in Win7; haven't tried Win8, though. Has a 30-day trial period.

Honest, not trying to "sell" it (wherein I get something in return), just highly passioned toward tools that not only make programming/computing life easier, but tools on my system that make it ROCK!

Best damned macro/automation/keyboard shortcut tool/app there ever was and is.

Example #1: Type Shift-Ctrl-T and a "Try/Catch" is inserted (VS2nnn-specific shortcut)
Example #2: Type Ctrl-[ and [] is inserted with the cursor then moved back between them so I can start typing the table or column name [SQL Mgmt Studio-specific]
Example #3: I had to change 6,500+ records through an archaic GUI, having no access to the SQL database. Took me10 minutes to setup a "repeat" QuicKeys sequence (7 minutes testing/refining it...), fired it up, went on a 15 minute break, came back and all the records were updated. Saved about 2 hours of flustering manual repetitive keyboard data entry.
