Does Visual Studio have a way of joining lines?

I want the same functionality that Ctrl+J provides in Sublime Text

No, it does not -- I'd love to know why.

This extension adds such support.


Tools -> Options -> Environment -> Keyboad -> Edit.JoinLines

Assign your new shortcut if none set (can choose the "Use new shortcut in:" to be set to "Text Editor") to configure context where we want to use the shortcut

P.S.: Remember to ensure any extension is not overriding the mapping (e.g. Resharper)
