To fix a problem, click the icon on the toolbar or in the context menu. You can also press Alt+Enter and select a suitable fix from the popup menu.
Clean up your code
You can streamline the process of fixing problems in your code by running Code Cleanup. This allows you to batch-apply quick-fixes to the selected scope without examining each problem individually.
