Scroll horizontally using Shift + Mouse Wheel
Many applications (e.g. Visio) and editors (e.g. EditPlus) have Shift+MouseWheelScroll wired up to a horizontal scroll action.
This seems like a useful convention to adopt in Visual Studio for the text editor (and others)
unbelivable this wasn't implemented until now , a must feature!
I should like to join the chorus of people politely requesting this feature. Arguably, this feature is critical when editing code.

This should be a built-in part of Visual Studio.
In the meantime, I created a small extension that adds this capability to VS2017.
Hopefully it helps someone out.

# Feature Request Summary
Please implement Horizontal scrolling (via Shift + Mouse Wheel Scroll) in all Visual Studio windows (editor & explorer windows). This is a standard feature in almost every application, it is even standard in VS Code.
# Expected behavior
When I hold down Shift while scrolling the mouse wheel up/down, while the mouse pointer is over any window inside of Visual Studio (editor or any explorer window) which has a horizontal scroll bar at the bottom, I expected that window (in which the pointer is located at the time that scrolling commences) to scroll horizontally left/right.
# Actual behaviour
When I hold down Shift while scrolling the mouse wheel up/down, I observe only normal up/down scrolling
# Examples of other applications of where this is already implemented
- Windows Explorer, Chrome Browser, Firefox Broweser (all implement Shift+Scroll)
- Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge (all implement Ctrl+Shift+Scroll)
# Previous Duplicate Requests (all closed or no response)
# Work Around (for other users frustrated with the lack of this essential feature)

Wow, how long does it take for really basic functionality to be implemented :|
This has been a feature of competing products for half a decade now
also shortcut support

Seriously MS? It's freakin' 2018, I'll bet Rider can do this industry standard thing.
I'm shocked this still hasn't been implemented

This behavior is akin to an industry standard - annoying omission.
Dan Probert commented
Any way you could make this for version 2012? Or tell me how?
Drew Noakes commented
@NickAllen, thank you so much! Just installed the extension and it works very well so far!
Nick Allen commented
For those of you who still want this, there is an extension called ShiftScroll which adds this functionality. Seems to work well for me
It's just UNBELIAVABLE to realize that VS haven't this feature yet. Come on, we're on 2016!

Can somebody on VS dev team spare a half day to implement this please? :)
