In Visual Studio (2008) is there a command to collapse/expand all the sections of code in a file?visual-studio-2008visual-studio
If you mean shortcut then
CTRL + M + M: This one will collapse the region your cursor is at whether its a method, namespace or whatever for collapsing code blocks, regions and methods. The first will collapse only the block/method or region your cursor is at while the second will collapse the entire region you are at.
CTRL + M + O will collapse all.
CTRL + M + L will expand all. (in VS 2013 - Toggle All outlining)
CTRL + M + P will expand all and disable outlining.
CTRL + M + M will collapse/expand the current section.
CTRL + M + A will collapse all even in Html files.
These options are also in the context menu under Outlining.
Right click in editor -> Outlining to find all options. (After disabling outlining, use same steps to enable outlinging.)
Ctrl+M expands region.
Ctrl+L collapses region.
Are you refering to the toggle outlining?
You can do: Control + M then Control + L to toggle all outlining
CTL + M + A collapses all
works for me, whereas
CTL + M + O
CTL + A
CTL + M + M
To compress all, including child nodes, in XML-files.
In Visual Studio 2013:
CTL + M + A collapses all
CTL + M + L expands all
The following key combinations are used to do things:
CTRL + M + M ------> Collapse / Expand current preset area (e.g. Method)
CTRL + M + H ------> Collapse / Hide (Expand) current selection
CTRL + M + O ------> Collapse all(Collapse declaration bodies)
CTRL + M + A ------> Collapse all
CTRL + M + X ------> Expand all
CTRL + M + L ------> Toggle all
There some options in the context menu under Outlining.
To collapse all use:
Ctrl + M and Ctrl+A
All shortcuts for VS 2012/2013/2015 available at http://visualstudioshortcuts.com/2013/
Below are all what you want:
CTRL + M + M
CTRL + M + H
CTRL + M + O

CTRL + M + L
In case of ugrading to Visual Studio 2010, 2012, 2013 or 2015, there's a Visual Studio extension to show current registered keyboard shortcuts, IntelliCommand.
Visual Studio can help you find the answer to your question in a couple of different ways.
Type Ctrl + Q to access Quick Launch, and then enter "collap". Quick Launch will display something like:†
Menus (1) Edit -> Outlining -> Collapse to Definitions (Ctrl+M, Ctrl+O) NuGet Packages (1) Search Online for NuGet Packages matching 'collap'
From there, enter "outlining" to find other menu entries related to outlining:
Menus (5) Edit -> Outlining -> Toggle Outlining Expansion (Ctrl+M, Ctrl+M) Edit -> Outlining -> Toggle All Outlining (Ctrl+M, Ctrl+L) Edit -> Outlining -> Stop Outlining (Ctrl+M, Ctrl+P) Edit -> Outlining -> Stop Hiding Current (Ctrl+M, Ctrl+U) Edit -> Outlining -> Collapse to Definitions (Ctrl+M, Ctrl+O) Options (4) Text Editor -> Basic -> VB Specific (Change outline mode, Automatic inser... ...
However, note that Quick Launch will show you only those commands that are available as Visual Studio menu entries. To find other keyboard-related commands related to collapsing sections of code, in the Visual Studio menu bar click:
Tools -> Options -> Environment -> Keyboard
This will display the keyboard section in the Options dialog box. In the "Show commands containing" text box, enter "edit.collap". Visual Studio will display a list that is something like:
Edit.CollapseAllincurrentblock Edit.CollapseAllOutlining Ctrl+M, Ctrl+A (Text Editor) Edit.CollapseBlockcurrentblock Edit.CollapseCurrentRegion Ctrl+M, Ctrl+S (Text Editor) Edit.CollapseTag Ctrl+M, Ctrl+T (Text Editor) Edit.CollapsetoDefinitions Ctrl+M, Ctrl+O (Text Editor)
You'll need to click each command to see its associated keyboard shortcut.
† My examples taken from Visual Studio 2013.
In Visual Studio 2017, It seems that this behavior is turned off by default. It can be enabled under Tools > Options > Text Editors > C# > Advanced > Outlining > "Collapse #regions when collapsing to definitions"
If you want to collapse/expand an area within a class/method (instead of collapsing the entire class/method), you may create custom regions as follow:
#region AnyNameforCollapsableRegion //Code to collapse #endregion
None of these worked for me. What I found was, in the editor, search the
Keyboard Shortcuts file for
editor.foldRecursively. That will give you the latest binding. In my case it was CMD + K, CMD + [.
