Disable the Toggle Completion Mode in Visual Studio

When writing code in Visual Studio, the shortkey Ctrl+Alt+Space toggles the completion mode of IntelliSense in the Text Editor.
The completion mode can be manually changed by going to this menu in VS2012:
EDIT > IntelliSense > Toggle Completion Mode

However the shortkey can be annoying while coding, depending on your keyboard configuration and language.

To disable this shortkey command in Visual Studio 2012 follow these steps:

  • Go to TOOLS
  • Select Options…
  • Go to Environment > Keyboard
  • Below the Show commands containing: type the word completion and hit the TAB-key
  • The filtered listbox should now contain a command called Edit.ToggleCompletionMode
  • Select it and hit the button Remove
  • Click OK to close the Options form

These steps are very similar to Visual Studio 2010.
