Visual Studio 2015 Touch Gestures

The code editor has been enhanced to support common gestures on touch screens. Touch already worked in previous versions but the IDE was not optimized; touch support was only available previously because of hardware capabilities. In Visual Studio 2015, you can:

 Double-tap a word or an identifier to select it.
 Press and hold on screen to open the context menu.
 Tap the margin of the code editor to select the corresponding line of code.
 Tap and hold anywhere on the code editor’s surface to scroll up and down.
 “Pinch and zoom” to zoom in and out with two fingers.

You will find these features very useful if you use Visual Studio 2015 on touch-enabled devices such as tablets or laptops.
