Run MSTest Without Breaking on Exceptions in VS2010

Quick tip I just figured out (no R# installed yet) when using VS2010’s test runner. If you want to just use the keyboard, then you can use ctrl-R T to Run Tests in Current Context. But if like me you tend to just leave ctrl held down when you hit the T, your test run will stop at any/every exception. Why? Because

ctrl-R T

is not the same as

ctrl-R ctrl-T

which is the shortcut for Debug Tests in Current Context.

Note to self, don’t be lazy and pick up your finger from the ctrl key when running tests…
