Visual Studio Tip: Delete a Line

I've written before about how to comment out code. Sometimes, however, you just want to get rid of a line altogether. The good news is that deleting a line is just a keystroke away, and you don't have to select the whole line to delete the whole line.

Instead, you can leverage the L (for "L"ine) key: <Ctrl>_L cuts the line the cursor is on so that you can paste the line in somewhere else. The more deadly <Shift>_<Ctrl>_L completely deletes the line, but if you need to get the line back, you can still use undo. And if you want to delete (or cut) multiple lines, just select multiple lines before using <Ctrl>_L or <Shift>_<Ctrl>_L, and you still don't have to select whole lines.
