The Atmel Studio uses the Visual Studio Shell framework from Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 and therefore the integrated development environment (IDE) includes several predefined keyboard shortcut schemes, identical to those in the Visual Studio. When you start Atmel Studio for the first time and select your settings, the associated schemes are automatically set. Thereafter, by using the keyboard options page in the Options dialog box, you can choose from additional schemes and you can also create your own keyboard shortcuts.
