Shortcut Keys for Try…Catch Block in C#

Wow!!! It amazing. I used to type Try…Catch block all the time. So, I thought Visual Studio must be having some shortcut keys for this. And to my surprise, it did have one Ctrl + K, Ctrl + S, it would show you a drop down list, type T and press Enter button…Boom!!! You got it. Take a look at below image…

My friends Abhijit Jhana and Shivprasad Koirala suggested type Try and press Tab twice. It works!!! And believer me, better than that I suggested above…
