I know snippets have been around for a long time but how many people use them and how many people know about them?
I find them a very useful time saver when writing a new class for example. If I want to write a new property with a GET and SET I can do this by simply writing prop as shown in the image below.
I use propfull which gives me the private variable and then a public GET and SET which will honestly save around a minute compared to typing this out manually. This is what you get with propfull.
There are a lot of other snippets that can be used, you can find the full list of them here http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/z41h7fat.aspx
