How To: Toggle / Next Bookmark in Visual C++

Bookmarking is a very useful feature of Visual C++ when you are coding, but the keyboard short cuts of this function is hard to remember. In the menu, you can find the short cuts of toggle and next bookmark are "Ctrl + K Ctrl +K" and "Ctrl + K Ctrl + N" respectively, but why do I need to press so many keys  just for toggle or next bookmark?

You can do it more easily, just use the following short cuts:

Toggle Bookmark - Ctrl + F2

Next Bookmark - F2

Wow! It is very easy to use, isn't it? Enjoy bookmarking feature during your coding time.

I have tried it on Visual C++ 6 / 2003 / 2005 / 2008, it works fine.
(Note: The key mapping of Visual Studio is set to default "Visual C++".)
