I got a new job where I have to use Visual Studio 2010. Im used to netbeans and it freaks me out that I cant find some basic tools that Netbeans has, ...like Ctrl + Click on functions, constructors, identifiers, anything ....navigating with Alt + left-right arrows, ....double click on something highlights it everywhere in the code and in the scrollbar too.
(We are working on a HUGE code which would slow down the VS so instead of VS database we use Tomato Visual Assist to map the code structure, ....I switched back to VSs database and it was the same)
Do these things have an alternative in VS? ....or some extensions for it?

Be thankful, that extension does great things for VS! Every professional VS developer should have it
we use Tomato Visual Assist
I think you can configure visual assist to allow ctrl click, but the default is to place the cursor on a symbol and press alt + G (maybe ctrl + double click also works).
I'm not sure what alt + left/right do in Netbeans, but the equivalent might be ctrl + +/-.
Regarding the scrollbar, check out the metascroll addon.

- right click > go to definition/declaration
- highlight and press F12
- view > code definition window, it'll show definitions automatically of whatever you click
- Ctrl + Alt + PgDwn/PgUp
- Get extension (can't remember if it highlights in scrollbar)
- Get VS2012 (doesn't highlight in scrollbar)
