I suggest you ...

Option "Show Always Intellisense"

Sometimes when I want to list all the methods of a function. I have to use 2 keyboard shortcuts to do this.
Option "Always show Intellisense" would make suggestions show ALL the time. If I click somewhere out the editing box, they will disappear, when I click back, they show again.

        Which two keyboard shortcuts show you "all the methods of a function"? Personally, Ctrl+Space and Ctrl+Shift+Space are just about all the IntelliSense I need.

        Showing all the time would be anoying.

        Try something like this: When the use clicks for example the work Math in the following line all the Math members will popout.

        System.Math.Cos(56);

        When the user clicks the System word, all the System members will pop out.

        For example: I don't remember the method names in classes. When I enter a class, I just browse for the desired one. The times of c++ when a user had to remember everything are way behind. When I sit by my computer I don't know which APIs am I going to use.
