Keyboard shortcuts are not active in Visual Studio with Resharper installed

I have Visual Studio 2012 + Resharper 7.1.1000.900 + StyleCop 4.7.44 installed.

The problem is that no shortcuts are active since Resharper was installed.

For example: I can rename via 'Refactor > Rename'. But shorcut Ctrl+R does nothing.

I've set Resharper keyboard scheme to 'Visual Studio' in 'Resharper > Options > Environment > Keyboard & Menus'

Is there any way to activate shortcuts? Thanks.


I would first try resetting all Visual Studio settings (Tools > Import and Export Settings > Reset all settings), then go to the Resharper > Options > Keyboard & Menus and re-apply the keyboard shortcut scheme.

I had to do something similar once.

This worked for me.

Setting to Resharper / Options / KeyBoard & Menus / None / Apply and Save

and then

Resharper / Options / KeyBoard & Menus / Set to Visual Studio / Apply and Save

I had the same problem and reset didn't fix it. Then the resharper support helped me. Solution was very simple! I'm from Russia and usually my default keyboard is Russian. In control panel | language settings | change keyboard - I changed default keyboard to English. Then reapply settings in VS: Resharper|Options|Keyboard&Menus - apply R# scheme. And the problem was fixed :)

You can look at the Visual Studio Integration options for ReSharper by...

  1. Select ReSharper > Options... from the Visual Studio menu
  2. Select the Visual Studio Integration item on the Options window

The bottom of the page gives instructions on how to reset the keyboard scheme.

If that doesn't work, I would re-install ReSharper.

I had a very difficult time getting this working one under VS2015 one day. After the initial install everything was working, but I come in this morning and my keyboard shortcuts don't work. Going through Resharper's Environment > Keyboard & Menus didn't work; reinstalling Resharper didn't work. Even deleting every configuration from Resharper's AppData folder didn't work.

So what did work? Going to Visual Studio's Tools > Options > Environment > Keyboard and clicking Reset. After I did that, then Resharper's schemes would take.

This one worked for me

RESHARPER > OPTIONS > select visual studio (Under Keyboard Shortcuts)

I had the same problem with Visual Studio 2015 and Resharper 9.2

"Resharper 9 keyboard shortcuts not working in Visual Studio 2015"

I had tried all possible resetting and applying keyboard schemes and found the answer from Yuri Fedoseev.

My Windows 10 language configuration only had Swedish in the language preferences "Control Panel\Clock, Language, and Region\Language"

The solution was to add English(I chose the US version) in the language list. And then go to Resharper > Options > Keyboard & Menus > Apply Scheme. (perhaps you do not even need to apply the scheme)

Alternatively - make sure that Resharper is enabled. My visual studio didn't update my Resharper license information, so when opening the resharper menu (after trying to figure out why my shortcuts stopped working!), the was a menu item "Why is Resharper disabled?" Clicking on the menu item opens up a dialog, which then automatically resolved the license. The next question for Jetbrains is why do I have to open the dialog for the thing to automatically renew??

Try this steps:

1) Resharper > Options > Keyboard & Menus

Then point choose:

  • Hide overridden Visual Studio menu items (Check)
  • Visual Studio (Check)

Then click on Apply Scheme and Save.

2) Tools > Options > Environment > Keyboard

  • Click Reset
  • Click Ok

Without resetting Visual Studio settings :

I found simply

  • ReSharper > Options > Keyboards
  • Apply Scheme button
  • Save button

Brought back my lost ReSharper keyboard commands without messing with my VS settings.

Just a comment on this issue. After I installed Visual Studio 2015 RTM all my resharper shortcuts were gone. (I had them working just fine with RC) A few of my colleagues were having the exact same issue with Visual Studio 2012.

I tried all the suggestions in here but none worked. The way I found to solve this was to: go to Tools -> Import and Export Settings , select the "Import selected environment settings" and in my case use the Settings I had from my RC installation (you can see that there are files with parts of a date as the filename like: CurrentSettings-2014-09-22). For my colleagues problem I basically sent them my .vssettings that I had that was working on my local VS2012 installation.

This effectively solved the shortcut problem. Further investigation in my case showed that although I applied the Resharper shortcuts they were never bound to the actual shortcut key thats why resetting stuff never worked.

  1. Reset or apply the scheme
  2. Save
  3. Restart Visual Studio

I got it working again by going into VS 2015 Options-> Keyboard, then hitting Reset. Then go back to resharper keyboard options and selecting the ReSharper scheme and hitting apply.

I have faced same problem. I followed the approved answer. I have done but it was not working, because my keyboard format was different. It was in Bengali keyboard. But later I have changed my keyboard layout and tried in this way.

Resharper > Options > Keyboard & Menus > Apply scheme > Save.

Then it was working fine. But whenever I change my keyboard English-US to Bengali then it changes again and I need to do reconfigure.

In Visual Studio: Tools -> Options -> Environment -> Keyboard -> Reset

Note for NVidia users: GeForce Experience silently overrides some hotkeys (for example Alt+F7) and ReSharper stops to handle them. So you need to disable or remap nvidia hotkeys first.

The only thing I could find said first try and do a VS-Repair. If that doesn't work then do this.

Restart Windows and in safe mode, run devenv /safemode in Visual Studio 2005 Command Prompt. If in safe mode this issue disappeared, the cause should be third-party applications, services or Visual Studio Add-ins. Please also try devenv /resetsettings or devenv /setup in Command Prompt.

I had to delete the

C:\Users{username}\AppData\Local\JetBrains folder. Then is was able to enable the shorcuts again.

I have tried many of the above issues and still had installation problems.

It turns out that downloading the full version (not the web installer), and running it as administrator finally got the latest version installed with no errors in VS 2015.

First you need to reset VS setting (tools > option > Export Settings > Reset all settings) and click Resharper button(Option > Environment > Keyboard&Menu > Keyboard shortcuts) select item you want to use and apply scheme.

It's work for me on visual studio 2012.

I tried the top 2 answers, but none of them worked for my case. I felt the ReSharper was not working at all, and also cannot find "ReSharper" as an option for the mapping scheme under Tools => Options => Environment => Keyboard. And then I tried to do a VS repair, luckily everything was back to work, and I could see the ReShaper as one of the mapping scheme options after the repairment.
