In Visual Studio 2015, there is a useful option in the File menu to Save Output As...

I use this a lot, and I wanted to assign it a convenient keyboard shortcut, but I can't find it anywhere in the list of functions when I try to assign the key.

Anyone know why this is?

Kind wishes ~ Patrick

What I have tried:

In the dialog to assign the keyboard shortcut, I have tried searching on 'file', 'save, and 'output'. I have also looked through some big chunks of the list (though admittedly not all of it, because it is getting rather long these days).

Microsoft knows. ;)

It turns out that it is File.SaveSelectedItemAs. The text on the File menu changes depending upon what is selected.

So now what I need is a quick way to combine two commands: one to switch to the Output Windows and one to call File.SaveSelectedItemAs.

Don't suppose Visual Studio has a quick way to do the equivalent of this trivial macro?
