The most frustrating “feature” in Visual Studio…

… is the “Waste 1 minute of my life” command – otherwise known as “F1”.

You know how it is: you’re in the zone, refactoring merrily – finger reaches instinctively to F2 to rename a variable, but misses the target, hit its left-hand neighbour, and … Visual Studio hangs. That is, it refuses to respond for a period of time that’s long enough to derail one train of thought, but too short to board another.

Come on Microsoft! If you can’t make Help load faster, at least do it asynchronously. Don’t slap my fat fingers!

You know you can unmap the F1 key, right? ;)

The obvious solution - and I didn't see it!

Thanks.
