ReSharper keyboard shortcuts stopped working

This post applies to ReSharper 8.2 running in Visual Studio Professional 2013 (12.0.30501.00 Update 2).

I’ve been installing a few Visual Studio extensions and ReSharper plugins recently and when I started Visual Studio this morning I found that the ReSharper keyboard shortcuts had stopped working. No problem though, it turned out to be an easy fix.

If you get this problem simply follow these steps:

  1. Go to ReSharper > Options.
  2. Locate Keyboard and Menus under the Environment section.
  3. I choose the Visual Studio keyboard scheme but you choose what’s appropriate to you.
  4. Click the Apply Scheme button.

That should be it. You may be prompted by ReSharper the first time you use certain ReSharper shortcuts to confirm what you want to do but this process has reset the ReSharper keyboard scheme.
