The VSC one that keeps getting me, it's 50% really useful and 50% utterly annoying, is that when you close a file and it moves to another tab, it also moves back to that file in the explorer. Sometimes that's very convenient, and other times it's a PITA because you closed that file in order to open another one right there at the same spot.
And I guess another that is in the same 50/50% category is the single vs. double click open. It can be really convenient if you are just going through a bunch of files one at a time. But inevitably I get myself to some place I need to be, and then go to open another file and forget I only single clicked the first one and it gets closed.
But, on the whole, I've started getting used to it for my C++ work.
Paying for VS gives you a version that does very little more than the free Community edition.

Heh to me, ctrl-s is move cursor left one character position. I'm an old fart who used WordStar in the CP/M days and I really like the WordStar cursor control movements. Basically, all my editors and IDE's (even Microsoft Word or Libre Office) use WordStar control sequences (or appear to!). I have an AutoHotKey script that changes my WordStar control sequences into the appropriate keystrokes for particular editor/IDE I'm using at the time. I also use and old ZiffDavis utility (TradeKeys) to make the Cap Locks into the control key.
Before I retired, it was quite funny watching an IT guys trying to use notepad when they had to mess with my machine.
Well, it also has much better support for TypeScript and Angular than Visual Studio Code. For minor typo fixes Notepad++ might be fine, but if you need any real work done you should always fire-up full fledged IDE like Rider or Visual Studio.
What did you do in your previous life to deserve that?
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?

Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
I don't think I've actually programmed c# for 4+ years now. I've done some debugging and a couple of fixes deployed but that's about it. I used to program c# for a living, and I liked it just fine. I prefer typescript to c# now though.
ah, so you're really programming in C# then... without .net
