VS2010 bring control to forefront

is there a shortcut (using keyboard) to bring a control to the forefront in Winforms?

I can see the control in the Properties dropdown, but am not able to locate it on my form... I know there is a "Bring to Front" function, but that only shows up in the context menu and since I cannot locate the control, I cannot use the context menu...

hence the question of a keyboard shortcut for this function.

@SriVaddadi:

I cannot find the control on the form to right click on it.

If I select it in the properties window, I cannot right click anywhere or I lose the focus of the control in the Properties window.

You will have to select the control from properties control combo box

You might also want to make a note of the location co-ordinates and change the location co-ordinates to 0,0 just in case the control is out of the form's visible design area
