I have this following code in one of my SO question ,

public IQueryable<Materials> GetMaterial(int id)
        return from m in db.Materials
                        join Mt in db.MeasurementTypes on m.MeasurementTypeId equals Mt.Id
                        where m.Mat_id equals id
                        select new Materials()
                            Id = Convert.ToInt64(m.Mat_id),
                            Mat_Name = m.Mat_Name,
                            Mes_Name = Mt.Name,

Look at the code from the forth line it is far right so that vertical scroll bar is seen... I have to select all the code from the 4th line till }; and move to left still further so that i can eliminate vertical scrollbar....... I tried Shift+Tab what it does it takes focus to the title textbox... Any suggestion...

Copy/paste it into a decent texteditor, use the unident feature, paste it back.

To outdent, like you want, you can select the indented lines (ensure to select whole lines, not partial lines) and click the "code" button or press Ctrl-K. That will not allow you to indent code further though: it will indent 4 spaces if there's no indenting yet, or outdent one step in all other cases.

As an aside: it's also best to use spaces, not tabs, and certainly not mix them. See How does The Editor Handle Tab Characters?
