The idea for this tip was submitted by a blog reader. She had no clue that this menu item existed.

Select a line of code, and then right-drag that line to anywhere within your editor (or into another editor window). Then you’ll get this little menu popup with the options of Move Here, Copy Here, and Cancel.

She loves it when blog readers give her little tips like these, especially when she never knew they existed. This tip inspired her to start playing the game “Stump the Sara,” where she asked blog readers to send her their most obscure IDE tricks. Since she only worked on the Visual Studio Core Team, the tips had to be limited to generic IDE features not tied to any specific language.

Happy Programming! =)
