TIP: VS keyboard shortcut for editor tooltip

It is Ctrl+K, Ctrl+I (just place your keyboard cursor on a variable and try it). You could have found this out on your own via the Tools->Options menu:

Unfortunately there isn't one for the datatip when debugging. Instead you can show the equivalent (and older) "Quick Watch" via Ctrl+Alt+Q or even better Shift+F9. If you really are determined to show the datatip via the keyboard(and I do mean if you really are fixated with that goal) there is a post here by Rob with a hack.
