Visual Studio Debugger Tips and Tricks: step out

Mariusz Wojcik

Recursive function in debugger

How many times did you step into a method just to realise you didn’t want to? Sometimes it is a simple, short method and you can step through it. Other times it is one of those monstrosities spanning for dozens of lines, or a recursive function. Instead of stopping debugger and starting again to avoid the mistake you can actually step out from the method. Just click step out icon on the toolbar, or use Shift + F11 shortcut and the debugger will take you out.
