What to do when Visual Studio Intellisense stops working

Written by  on July 24, 2015 

From here:

If only 1 file/window appears to be affected, close/reopen that file. If that doesn’t work, try below.

In Visual Studio:

  1. Click Tools->Options->Text Editor->All Languages->General
  2. Uncheck “Auto list members”
  3. Uncheck “Parameter information”
  4. Check “Auto list members” (yes, the one you just unchecked)
  5. Check “Parameter information” (again, the one you just unchecked)
  6. Click OK

If this doesn’t work, here’s a few more steps to try:

  1. If still not working, close all documents and reopen
  2. If still not working, close/reopen solution
  3. If still not working, restart VS.
