Disable Ctrl+Click Navigate

I am very use to using Ctrl-click to highlight words in visual studio, but Resharper replaces this with its own navigation behavior. Where is the option to change this?

Many thanks.

Thanks!

Hello,

I am very use to using Ctrl-click to highlight words in visual studio,
but Resharper replaces this with its own navigation behavior.


Ctrl+Click has been updated to be friendly with Drag'n'Drop copying (with
Ctrl key) and to be more or less compatible with Ctrl+Click word selection.
To select a word without navigation happening, move the cursor slightly while
the mouse button is down.

I strongly recommend leaving ctrl+click to be owned by resharper.

Replace highlight words clicking with the usage of the resharper command "Expand selection" i believe the default hotkey for expand selection is Ctrl+shift+w but i may have remapped it to that.

Expand selection was one of the hardest habits to get myself into with resharper but now that i use it, i use it all the time. I also end up trying to do it in other apps and random things occur from me rapidly pressing Ctrl+shift+w Ctrl+shift+w Ctrl+shift+w with no further thought.

Ctrlshiftw but i may have remapped it to that.


CtrlW actually (just like in a clean VS), and additionally CtrlAlt+Right
(+Left to undo) with R# Visual Studio friendly keyboard layout.

PS I've once put some effort into making Ctrl+Click usable with DnD and word
selection. As I mentioned, it would cancel off navigation if you move the
cursor slightly while the button is pressed down.

Thanks for the answers everyone. I've found the option that overrides the default highlight functionality.

I'm saying you should override the default functionality and learn to use expand selection.

I don't think that's accurate. Looking at the keyboard settings Ctrl+W is used as a combinatory keyboard command for nearly 2 dozen commands so pressing ctrl+W merely gives you "waiting for second key"

It's quite possible i created ctrl+shift+w then.

I find all keyboard commands that require the right hand to be aboslutely worthless. I want keyboard commands purely on my left hand so i can use my right hand to navigate with the mouse.

Why should I override a function that I use constently with something that I only use rarely? I don't use "go to declaration" enough for it to have its own hotkey.

Because it will change your world when you know you can always ctrl+click on everything to navigate everywhere.

Also expand selection is why more powerful than the visual studio highlighting, it understands code blocks properly.

I am delighted to find this solution. I am also highly bemused by Chris Marisic's determination of insisting the problem is in fact, a good thing, instead of helping the original poster to solve this problem. Some of us have this thing; it's called "Muscle Memory". Some of us have it, and can be decades old; meaning, we can't/won't change, and find the hijacking of our beloved CTL key (+click to select whole word) a huge frustration. Long live CTL+click to select!
