Visual Studio 2010 Keyboard Shortcuts

Earlier this week the Visual Studio team released updated VS 2010 Keyboard Shortcut Posters .  These posters are print-ready documents (that now support standard paper sizes), and provide nice “cheat sheet” tables that can help you quickly lookup (and eventually memorize) common keystroke commands within Visual Studio.
