Visual Studio 2010 stops responding to keyboard – a workaround

Written on November 05, 2011

Some of you may have encountered the following problem:

Especially in ASP.NET MVC 3 projects (but not only) your Visual Studio may stop responding to your keyboard -- mostly backspace and arrow keys (add others if you like ).

The only solution seems to be a restart of Visual Studio.

But there's a simple workaround: hit Ctrl+Tab twice which brings you to the previous file you have been editing and then back to the file you wanted to edit ultimately -- and everything should be fine.
