Cycle Clipboard Ring - Secrets of Visual Studio

Least known but yet most powerful facility of Visual Studio is Cycle Clipboard Ring option.

What is Cycle Clipboard Ring?

Can you copy 10 different items in notepad and now paste all 10. You Can’t. L
What you can paste is only last copied item.

But visual studio allows you to paste last 16 copied items. J

In above image, I want to COPY all red arrow lines from bottom to top i.e. from line 132 to 108

Once copied, now I can paste all these items anywhere in Visual studio editors by using Cycle Clipboard Ring.

This option is available in Edit -> Cycle Clipboard Ring or Ctrl + Shift + V
Hold Ctrl + Shift and Press V again and again [Don’t release Ctrl + Shift]

It’s like a circular stack, after pasting last item you should get first item again as below
