Visual Studio has, no doubt, thousands of little bugs that, taken individually, do not make the bar for a given release. The accumulation of these little bugs over the years has significantly impacted the overall quality experience of using Visual Studio. Those little bugs are important - spend more time on them, rather than summarily closing them when they appear on connect.36 votes

Please enhance Visual Studio Unit Tests for better support of data driven unit test, like NUnit TestCase attribute.
[TestCase(1, 1, 2)]
[TestCase(1, 2, 3)]
[TestCase(1, 4, 5)]
public void test_Add(int x, int y, int result)
Assert.AreEqual(MyUtils.Add(x, y), result);
Such an attribute is urgently needed for testing methods with several test cases.33 votes

Just noticed that Add Style rule dialogue box which showed up CSS-outline is missing in VS2012 or I am missing some changes made by MS?32 votes
Visual Studio deberia tener un complemento que permita cambiar de idioma del entorno (etiquetas, mensajes, todo!) sin necesidad de instalar el producto por completo!, Seria un concepto muy similar al que ya conocemos con Windows Language Pack!
Visual Studio should have a plug/extension/pack for changing the language of the environment (labels, messages, everything!) Without installing the product completely!, Would be a concept very similar to that already familiar with Windows Language Pack!31 votes
The "use custom server" options have been removed from web site project's properties window making it difficult to run and debug within local IIS and instead forcing the use of IIS Express. Please add this option back.31 votes

The Multilingual App Toolkit is a powerful extension to Visual Studio for managing language strings with standards based xliff files in Windows 8 Apps. Web applications in ASP.Net desperately need this same toolkit. Please consider expanding Multilingual App Toolkit for other types of applications.
This request is similar to 'Support the Multilingual App Toolkit to WPF or Windows applications'30 votes
When a user control or form gets updated via the graphical designer, Visual Studio seems to create the underlying designer.cs file totally anew, instead of updating just what changed.
When you check that into your version control system, a diff view of the changes becomes totally meaningless, since almost every line has some sort of "change".
So please,please, please: try to update the designer.cs files in such a way that changes are minimal.30 votes
Project Template based on some common Design Patterns, it would be ideal so have some project templates which will reflect some of the commonly user design pattern.28 votes
Could you please include sources of Ionic.zip.utils (under ms pl) to .Net platform and speed up his implementation?
Zipping+AES Encryption is very popular. And used almost everywhere. Comparing to wrapper of 7-zip compression takes longer in 2 times and with begger size, but API of ionic is very great.27 votes
Often, when searching, I wish to be able to tell VS which files NOT to search in.
Good example, search in all files, except 'Designer.cs' files.
Since thecode behind file also ends in '.cs' there is no way of doing this.23 votes

Have first class support for less style sheets in the IDE.22 votes
.. including syntax highlighting, Intellisense, a suite of default templates (from web development to WCF to WPF).
Currently, a separate package has to be installed to use IronRuby and IronPython in Visual Studio.
It would also be nice if we could link directly into Ruby/Python DLLs from C#.22 votes
Scrolling using mouse wheel button click
On the pre-2010 version of visual studio I was able to scroll by clicking on the mouse wheel button and then moving the mouse, this is no longer possible
I would really like to be able to scroll this way again :)22 votes
In VS 2010 a prompt would show up when switching between branches that used the same IIS path. This prompt was: "The Web project '...' is currently configured to use the URL '...'. The Web server has this URL mapped to a different folder '...'. Would you like to remap this URL to point to this Web project's folder?". VS 2012 no longer asks this. It just remaps the paths without asking. I know some will prefer 2010's way and some 2012's way, so please give us a setting that allows us to choose whether we are prompted.22 votes
Create a linked js file to user controls, exactly like you did with the codebehind cs file for ide solution explorer viewing.
Create a linked js file to user controls, exactly like you did with the codebehind cs file. This would allow easy js separation and ide navigation for the developer to get to the control's client script... additionally, it would allow us to have the markup and js in two edit windows for parallel development (as opposed to splitting the screen).21 votes
There are 3 main areas where Edit & Continue doesn't work, this reduces speed of development significantly in some cases. I suggest that this great feature is improved to cope with newer features of Visual Studio:
- Support for Generics21 votes
Thanks for the great suggestion.
Due to the way we work on features, having a single suggestion that represents what is actually many features across different teams is difficult to track and prioritize. Instead, I’ve changed this suggestion to represent “Edit & Continue: Support for Generics”. We already have two other suggestions representing anonymous methods and x64 support. If you voted for this suggestion for either of those, feel free to move your vote:
- Don't see your idea?
