Visual Studio IDE

Announcement: Last fall, we migrated this forum to Visual Studio Developer Community to provide you one convenient and responsive system for all feedback. As the final step in the migration, this forum will be closed off completely on June 1st, 2019. We encourage you to visit Visual Studio Developer Community where you can now suggest new ideas, browse and vote on existing ideas, and engage with Visual Studio teams.

We’d like your suggestions and ideas to help us continuously improve future releases of Visual Studio, so we’ve partnered with UserVoice, a third-party service, to collect your feedback. Please do not send any novel or patentable ideas, copyrighted materials, samples or demos for which you do not want to grant a license to Microsoft.

This site is for feature suggestions; if you need to file a bug, you can visit our Developer Community website to get started.

Note: your use of the portal and your submission is subject to the UserVoice Terms of Service & Privacy Policy and license terms.

We look forward to hearing from you!
- The Visual Studio Team

I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Why is there a feedback button?

    Why is there a feedback button? It's distracting and I'm tired of everything in Win10 asking me questions. Even my login screen wallpaper asks for feedback. I'm constantly being distracted by the bombardment of feedback requests!

  2. Add ability to capture short screencasts in IDE feedback

    I often find myself wanting to provide feedback on things like c++ intellisense in Visual Studio.
    However, it is difficult to get the idea across, you really need to see what is going on while typing in order to appreciate the issues.

    In the past, I had to install some screen capture utilities, capture and upload the movie to MSConnect, in order to get someone at MS to take the issue seriously. The movie led the MS developer directly to the solution.

    It would be really handy to be able to easily capture short screencasts in the VS IDE feedback…

  3. Opensource the backend behind "Send a Smile/Send a frown"

    In few videos and blog posts, you've shared the stack you have behind the "Send a smile/send a frown" feature in Visual Studio.
    This system can be a great tool for developers out there, to use in their own apps.

    Can you opensource the backend for this feature, and maybe a little frontend for WPF/UWP ?
