Hi,

how do you deal with expand/collapse in absence of numpad?

Could you be more specific? What is expand/collapse and what does it
have to do with numpad?

expand/collapse branches in any tree view (Project Explorer, Search Results, Outline, ...). Numpad add/substract are the keys mapped to expand/collapse respectively. Problem is that to access numpad add on my otherwise nice keyboard I have to press Fn, Numpad_Add, Fn (three keys).

depending on the operating system you might be able to use the left and right
arrow keys to collapse and expand tree nodes.

Shift arrow is what works on Linux

Yay! I confirm: I am on Win and left/right arrow keys do work. How come I haven't found it earlier given I almost don't touch the mouse? You just saved my new $100 numpadless keyboard from being shelved. Thanks a lot.
