Shortcut to compare files in the Pending Change window

Update: added the settings to change the default behaviour

In the pending changes window you can double click a file, which opens the file. Another action I perform frequently in the dialog is to compare the file with the latest version to see which changes I have done to the file.

Instead of opening the context menu, there is also an undocumented shortcut for this feature:Press SHIFT while double clicking the file, or you can use SHIFT + ENTER when you prefer using the keyboard.

If you want to change the default behaviour, you must change the registry:

                Path:     HKCU\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\<ver>\TeamFoundation\SourceControl\Behavior
                Value:   DoubleClickOnChange (DWORD)
                                0 for view as the primary command (default)
                                1 for compare as primary command
