Using the clipboard ring in Visual Studio


This is a very old feature really but didn’t bother to check it out before: Basically in Visual Studio you can select from up to 20 last-copied items in the clipboard. Instead of Ctrl + V, using Ctrl + Shift + V cycles through the 20 items starting from the most recent and going backwards.

Also, as SQL Server Management Studio is based on Visual Studio, it works in SSMS too!

It’s a handy feature and will try to utilise it more often…
