Visual Studio hangs while debugging with the Function key shortcuts

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, @PaiHarshini-2913

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

Hi, Thanks for the reply

The issue is not because of the extensions. Visual Studio behaves abruptly. Sometimes hangs when function keys are used and some other times, hangs even when ctrl+c or ctrl+f is used while debugging. Very strange behaviour.

Hi, thanks for the reply. The issue is not resolved though
The issue isnt related to the plugins installed. VS behaves abruptly. It randomly hangs while debugging. Sometimes when function keys are used and some other times, with copy or find shortcuts too. Very strange behaviour.

Tried reinstalling the VS and also the resetsettings options. Works fine for a while and again the same problem relapses.

Hi, @PaiHarshini-2913
Run VS in safe mode(devenv.exe /safemode), how about the result?
What types of projects will you encounter this issue, all types of projects or just C++ projects? I have tried but cannot reproduce your issue on my device.
Does your device meet the system requirements of Visual Studio2015?
