F7 to toogle between markup and code behind in Visual Studio 2015

Working with ASP.NET a nice keyboard shortcut is F7, which by default will take you from the markup to the code behind file. Unfortunately it is not bound to take you to the markup from the code behind file.

But you can set this up by going to the menu Tools -> Options… -> Environment -> Keyboard
In the text box labeled “Show commands containing:” type “toggledesigner” and set up F7 as the global shortcut key.

Windows 8 – Fingerprint is already enrolled issue

I recently encountered a “Fingerprint is already enrolled” error when trying to register a finger print on my Lenovo W530.

I tried to clear the fingerprint data in BIOS, but that didn’t work. After more scouring on the internet I found this question on TechNet.

Turned out all I needed to do to get it working was to delete the C:\Windows\System32\WinBioDatabase\[GUID].DAT file.

ALPS GlidePoint TouchPad configuration in linux

I was missing edge scrolling on my Fujitsu XI3650 laptop running Bodhi Linux 2.2.0.

cd /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d

Add the following options to the “InputClass” section with identifier “touchpad catchall”:

 Option "SHMConfig" "True"

Eclipse UI theming issue

I had some issues with the theming of eclipse juno on linux. I’m running with a dark GTK theme, and the tabs were all light, and blurry even though i told eclipse to use GTK theme in the preferences. I finally found this bug ticket over at eclipse.org: https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=392965

The suggestion is to remove all *.css files used for styling. It worked for me:

rm eclipse/plugins/org.eclipse.platform_4.2.1.v201209141800/css/*.css
