I m using VS 2015 to debug native c++ code. it hangs when I debug using the function keys. when I try the same thing with the buttons on the IDE, it works.

Its very annoying that even the F12 operation hangs the VS itself

    Hi, @Pai, Harshini

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A!

    Have you installed some extensions that cause shortcut key conflicts? You can try to use the /safemode command to start Visual Studio for debugging.

    Sincerely,
    Peng
