Send F1 Searches Online to Google with this Macro




Marty wrote a Macro for VS that performs a google search on the current F1 keyword in the IDE.  Check it out for yourself here: http://www.little-garins.com/Blogs/marty/archive/2004/06/24/171.aspx


This is pretty cool, but what impressed me was the quick turnaround of ideas into reality amongst developer bloggers. 


Last Wednesday I wrote this in my blog: “F1 is still cool, but I wonder how useful an “Alt+F1” to google search would be.  Maybe that will be my next project. “


On Thursday I found this trackback from Marty: “I was struck by Josh‘s comments so I built one and I am sharing it with you. Hopefully you will find it helpful as well.”


Stefano says: “A great idea…Thanks for the tip.“


Roland, in addition to also providing a cool tweak to scope the results to MSDN, says it’s “really cool“.


Enjoy – Josh
