Many of her “Tip of the Day” ideas come from looking through her old test cases. The Ctrl+Delete test case caught her eye because she had completely forgotten about this keyboard shortcut!

Ctrl+Delete deletes the next word the editor finds. The command is Edit.WordDeleteToEnd.

Ctrl+Backspace deletes the previous word. The command is Edit.WordDeleteToStart.

Happy Programming!
