Shortcut to resolve missing references in Visual Studio

I've seen people resolve missing references very easily and quickly using some keyboard shortcut, and I've always wondered how.

I finally got round to looking up what the shortcut is. Its really easy.

Just hit CTRL + . (thats a full stop/period). and that pops up the context menu from which you can select the correct using. You can just hit ENTER and it selects the first item, which is to put a using statement in.

There are a few more shortcuts here http://www.dev102.com/2008/04/17/10-visual-studio-shortcuts-you-must-know/
