Reformat Your Whole Code File in One Step

Often after I've cut or pasted some text, I find that my code isn't formatted correctly any more. As long as your code is syntactically correct (i.e. no stray brackets or End Ifs without matching Ifs), Visual Studio will reformat your whole file with one key chord: Hold down the Control key and then press K, followed by D.

Boom! Everything looks pretty again.
