Debugging is itself not too bad, but when you have to attach your debugger to a running task, it can become a pain. Faced with this problem, I found a neat little macro (probably from here, but I can’t be sure) that could attach the debugger to a known process. I managed to add that to my custom toolbar along with another custom toolbar action that launched my application’s EXE (I work on the DLL’s, not the app itself). Now, launch and debug are right there in VS.

A workplace colleague also pointed out how to search for any bit of text (i.e. Code, error message etc.) on Google from within VS.Net. The comments there had a few other nifty ideas too.
