Refreshing the Intellisense Cache in SSMS 2008+

Intellisense is a new feature that became available in SSMS 2008 onwards. Sometimes i find that intellisense becomes stale and you start getting the squiggly red lines when writing code..even though you are certain the object exists and is correctly spelt.

Refreshing the cache is easy but not necessarily obvious. There are two ways to refresh the cache:

1) Go to Edit -> IntelliSense -> Refresh Local Cache

2) Ctrl+Shift+R Shortcut
