Ctrl+L cuts the current line, including the end-of-line character (EOL). The command is Edit.LineCut.

Ctrl+Shift+L deletes the current line, including the EOL. The command is Edit.LineDelete.

Here’s an example of Ctrl+L being used. In this example, you’ll see the cursor before the Console.WriteLine() call.

And after you hit Ctrl+L, the line disappears.

But let’s continue on with a bonus tip . . . Shift+Delete cuts the current line, including the EOL, if nothing is selected on the current line. If text is selected, Shift+Delete cuts just that text.

Happy Programming! =)
