One of the missing feature of WPF is that it it does not have report controls in the toolkit. Because most applications are data driven and in LOB apps report is indispensable.160 votes
Provide a WPF-native version of the PropertyGrid control as a standard control. The PropertyGrid is currently only available as a Windows Forms control. Visual Studio now has a WPF PropertyGrid within it and it would be nice if developers could use that control, out of the box.136 votes
Currently, System Windows Forms based controls always draw on top of WPF controls when they overlap, which is undesirable. I suggest that you fully integrate SWF controls into WPF so they appropriately handle the z-order, opacity, zoom, and other WPF properties.98 votes

I see MS has recently released Visual Studio Tools for Unity for VS2013... but it seems to work only for Pro and above versions. Is it possible (or even planned) to be released for VS Express?66 votes
When Visual Studio has plugins like NCrunch or Resharper installed. Startup times are affected on some pc's.
If it is taking a very long time to load, VS should state which plugin is causing the problem and clear the package cache and give option to disable anything that is locking up the solution.18 votes
Fakes and Shims are only useful if every developer in the team is able to use it to enhance their unit tests. Limiting its availability to just Architects and Senior developers (who usually have Premium or Ultimate level subscriptions) sounds like such a bad idea. This is killing the power of such potentially amazing tool! Please consider this.

Expression Design is still used often by XAML developers to design assets for their applications. It is useful, but lacks some features that would make it a true competitor against Adobe Illustrator.
Open sourcing the application would give developers like myself the opportunity to continue the development and make this great tool even better.12 votes
Can't believe this isn't a request already, but probably my biggest annoyance.
I really should be able to do
rather than having to do
The default namespace which is set in a project file is erased each time the projects are re-generated.
It is used e.g. for ReSharper code generation and clean up steps, so a correct default namespace is really useful and it would be great if it could be set in the UnityVS configuration.9 votes

In VS2015 Preview, Smart Unit Tests does not support generating tests for VB.NET projects. Please extend this feature to enable generating tests for VB.NET projects.7 votes
Please make Binding.Source, Binding.Path and Binding.Parameter bindable, or at least some of them. This will allow dramatic code simplification. For example, binding to a variable property without Dynamic Properties ICustomTypeProvider, without Reflection and without complex MultiBindings with converters.5 votes
From Tarun Arora:
I would like to colour code the PerfTips, I see numbers all the time and after a while stop paying attention. However, if I could set a threshold & colour code the threshold, it would be easier to identify what requires attention.7 votes
We have the problem that old values are in the cache from the IE-Explorer and Chrome because there is a bug by caching data.
The refresh-method works not, because we call the SQL-command with "myapp.activeDataWorkspace" to edit the record. this is not other possible because we work with SQL-views in the grid for better performance.
We search a command to "clear" the cache. has anyone an idea?11 votes
This might be a popup, this might be a balloon, this might be a build error. To be honest, the ability to choose how it is surfaced would be wonderful, but anything would be better than just a line in the Output window that could by (and often is) easily overlooked.9 votes
We at Visual Studio would like to know just how much interest there would be in the developer community for PerfTips that can show memory usage.

Comments in a pull request are tied directly to a line number. Thus, as more commits are added, they will shift around in the file, and become confusing.
I don't know what the best solution for this would be, but it's rather disorienting for in-progress stories.15 votes
This should apply to Windows Phone Emulator, attached WP8 device, and Windows 8
Currently you can only debug js code if it is running in the root of the app ( ala a JS based application ) It would be great to be able to debug js code running inside a WebView as well.
Even if the only way to do this was by putting `debug` in your js code, and being prompted to open a new instance of VS, it would be extremely helpful.58 votes
