How to force update of Intellisense without opening and closing a file in Visual Studio 2008?

In Visual Studio 2008, I periodically see the error in the status bar:
”Error updating JScript Intellisense, see Error list”

HOWEVER, there are no errors about this in the Error list!  And, the site compiles, runs, and publishes perfectly!  Total annoyance!

I believe this is an error caused by the inclusion of the JQuery library and some inability of the Intellisense parser to “play nice in the playground”.

Okay, so what’s the [workaround]?

You can force an update of Intellisense with the following keyboard-shortcut:

Ctrl + Shift + J

And Voila!  Problem Solved!  Annoyance gone!
