Options that make your life easier – VS 2005No Comments
If you selected the C# profile in VS 2005 you will find some annoyances.
I’ve read this post today from Scott Guthrie
talking about some tweaks to do on VS 2005 via Tools->Options and I
thought it would be nice to have it summarized and handy.
Enable the output window to show up on
this by default, select the Tools->Options menu item. Then under Project and Solutions->General
select the â€œShow Output Windows when Build startsâ€ checkbox.
Show MSBuild Output Verbosity â€œNormalâ€:
Tools->Options menu item. Then under
Project and Solutions->Build and Run you can select the MSBuild project
verbosity dropdown to be: â€œQuietâ€, â€œMinimalâ€, â€œNormalâ€, â€œDetailedâ€, and â€œDiagnosticâ€.
Track Active Item in Solution Explorer (my favorite)
this feature in the C# profile, select the Tools->Options menu. Under Projects and Solutions->General
select the â€œTrack Active Item in Solution Explorerâ€ checkbox.
