Very Easy - Very Important

When I select different controls on a form one at a time the selected property in the properties window changes.  I switched from vb a few months ago and in vb i am used to just going down the list of controls on a form no matter what they are and if i am changing the TabIndex property... that property stays selected.

Now, in C#, when i go through the controls it seems to default to a specific property depending on what type of control it is.  A friend of mine has it set up the old way but he specified his settings as VB settings when he initially installed.

Is there a way I can set it to keep whatever selected property is currently focused to stay there as long as the newly selected control has that property?

It maybe something to do with keyboard mapping.  Look at Tools|Options|Environment|Keyboard  Mine's set to Visual Basic 6 which was my background.
