        Thanks for the suggestion! We’re currently in the planning process for enabling iterations in TFVC code reviews. We’ll come back and update this when we have a better idea of the release timeframe.

        We are using the tool and like it, but would like to be able to respond to a code review with new code and comments.
        At the moment we basically close the review and start a new one (as others have said) I would like to be able to do the code review and then make changes to the code and have them attached to the same review. We should be able to see the alternatives side by side. and we should be able to navigate forwards and backwards through the changes.

          We re-ordered parts of the Solution Explorer project context menu in Visual Studio 2013 RC. You’ll find the ‘Add Reference’ and similar items in the ‘Add’ flyout and we’ve added a couple more flyouts to help reduce the root-level overload. Let us know what you think!

            I resent the implication that because I want a Ribbon and I use a mouse and menus instead of a key board that I am not a "Power User" I am most certainly a Power user. I just happen to be a very visual person, I don't remember arbitrary commands very well but I do remember visual cues really well. As for those suggesting that I should spend time configuring the tool bar, you are missing the point. I am a Power user therefore I need a visual way of navigating to every command available in Visual studio.

            Come on haters, there is no reason that you will loose any keyboard short cuts, because we get a ribbon interface. for those that want extra room then collapse the ribbon (or buy a larger monitor).

            Its not the tool bars that need addressing it is the context menu. With resharper and a couple of other plugins like VS commands and Code Maid my right click menu is out of control. Help!!

            The ribbon is a great idea. Screen real estate concerns seem overrated to me, as a dev I either use dual monitors or a 24" min screen. So I have lots of space.

                Hi, I guess I missed your comment when you made it. Hopefully this is not to late.

                I think it should just get checked into TFS. Although I don't really know if a repo needs to be created or not. Perhaps it creates a repo, I don't really care. I want it abstracted away from me so that I don't have to know. I really only want to do 2 things get the code, and when I have finished updating it I want to contribute it back.
                In between these actions I will use TFService.

                Github is a whole new knowledge domain that I don't really want to learn. Its complex and obtuse and is only relevant because it is so popular. I have a open source project on github which I created mainly to learn about Github, so its not like I am making these comments without trying to use the product.

                When I cloned in windows It did create a repo on my machine, but I found trying to use the repo painful. When I tried to used my laptop instead of my Desktop it was very confusing, how do I develop on multiple machines. I had tried creating another repo (on my laptop) but I was never sure how to check code in in one repo and then get it in the other repo. In the end I gave up and checked it into TFS which I can easily connect to on any workstation. When I was done I copied it back into the repo and then pushed to the server.

                    We need a way to vote this down. If I want a DVCS I will use one. I want a better TFS. There might be a few tricks TFS can learn from a DVCS but I dont see any value in changing the product.

                      I dont really want to have to search all of the time but search would be better than nothing.
                      I would like to be able to sort my tests by test category, and project/class
                      the new test explorer is pretty but not very functional, no sorting abiliuty and francly it is difficult to tell when tests have finished running unless the status changes from red to green or vice versa

                        Thank you everyone for voting and commenting on this issue.
                        We are happy to share that we have made changes to the Menu Bar style in Visual Studio. In Visual Studio “14” CTP2 Menu Bar shows in Title Case and in Visual Studio 2013 Update 3 RC we have added a tools options control for you to pick Title Case styling or All Caps styling for the Menu Bar. Please refer to the following announcements for details –
                        http://blogs.msdn.com/b/visualstudio/archive/2014/07/08/visual-studio-14-ctp-2-available.aspx

                        If you are using Visual Studio 2012, you can change the Menu Bar style using this regkey –
                        HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\11.0\General
                        DWORD: SuppressUppercaseConversion
                        Value: 1

                        -————————————————————————

                        Thanks to everyone who voted and commented on this issue. Keeping with a Microsoft-wide emphasis on typography and casing as a key structure-defining element, we are retaining all caps casing as our default within the Visual Studio top level menu…

                        We need away to vote this down because I like the all caps better, than not having Caps.
