In VS 2003, I can switch to the Task List with Ctrl+Alt+K or Output with Ctrl+Alt+O (both of which include errors). I can go to the code by selecting an error (with arrow keys) and hitting Enter.

In VB 2008, those shortcuts work but there's also an Error List window whose keyboard shortcut is Ctrl+W Ctrl+E.
