"find in files" does not work

"find in files" does not work

Suddenly - without warning the "find in files" button has stopped working as has CTRL+SHIFT +F , any ideas why - I am using Microsoft visual studio 2008 . Had a look on internet and someone had same problem and was told to use CTRL+ scrolll Lock - this worked for him - but it has not worked for me - It occurs over all projects

For more complete information about compiler optimizations, see our Optimization Notice.

In VS2008, select Edit > Find and Replace. Look at the entry for Find in Files. What does it show as the shortcut for it, if any?

Now go to Tools > Options > Environment > Keyboard. In the "Show commands containing" field type in findinfiles. What does it say the shortcut is? You can reset it here.

How do you know all this stuff, that is so arcane?


Experience. But in this case it's just 14 years of using Visual Studio so I know where most things are.
