Faster Visual Studio Debugging With ReAttach Extension

Debug faster in VS with ReAttach

Once you've installed ReAttach, make sure to use its inbuilt shortcut or create your own. I added my own as Alt+R in Visual Studio:

Tools->Options->Keyboard->Search for reattach and assing Alt+R shortcut

Also it helps if you know what w3wp process to attach to in the beginning. Use the list wp command under Visual Studio tools for this. Read more on finding the right web process at the Nansen blog.
