  1. Updating waists an insane amount of time. Please. More regularly. Smaller. Please.

    I am the team-lead for a small (7) devs. When updating VS, my dev shop is dead in the water. We might as well go out and have a few beers. Please make the updates smaller. More frequently if you have to but I really do not want to suck down more than 5MB per person per day. Please make it more agile.

          • Visual Studio 2017 is terribly slow in everything I do - please fix this and hurry!

            I've been using VS 2013 with a particular solution (with about 10 projects - 1/2 C++ and 1/2 C#). I've been steadily working in this environment for 2 years.

            So I decided to upgrade to VS 2017 15.5 and .NET 4.71. The upgrade process worked fine - managed to get the few extensions I needed installed and I was able to open, compile and run my prior work. Only problem, my gosh is 2017 slow and terribly non-productive as compared to 2013. It is noticeably slower in EVERYTHING I do - period. One of the reasons I upgraded is that…

              • Make Quick Find Fast

                Quick Find (Ctrl F) is extremely slow to open, especially in larger files (in VS2015 and prior). Often it takes as much as 500 ms from the time I hit Ctrl F.

                Frequently I hit Ctrl F and start typing my search term but my typing goes into my document because the Find window is still loading. It is very frustrating, please consider looking into.

                • Debugging Android App without rebuild when there are no changes

                  When I've not made any changes to the project and I want to debug again I would think that a build is not needed at all to start the application again. It would be nice if VS would recognise that situation and just start a new debugging session without the build.

                  • Allow other programs to have more resources while updating Visual Studio

                    Add a selection to slow installer down temporarily so you can use other applications better while you wait so long.

                          • Restore database performance degradation

                            Using the new Restore database UI from SSMS is nice but the performance degrade when you have a couple 100's backup in the msdb.dbo.backupset. For each line in this table for the selected database, 3 sql batch are sent to the server to load some relevant informations. These SQL query should be done in one single batch. The code seems to use Entity Framework. Please use the include function instead of accessing the information with the navigation property.

                            • Make it so that I can quickly see a file in a project, then load other VS features in the backgound

                              I'm a teacher, so I open multiple small projects belonging to students per day. Almost all those projects consist of less than 5 files C++ or C# with at _most_ 1000 lines of code in total. Despite this, it regularly takes 20 to 40 seconds to open a project. That is, I have to wait 20 seconds before being able to start to look at the code which is increadibly annoying. I would suggest you make it so that it is really quick to be able to show files in a project and then load other VS feature in the…

                                • cgthreads should not be limited to 8

                                  Linking time is by far the slowest part of the build time of my Visual Studio Project. Using -cgthreads8 is twice as fast as -cgthreads4 on my machine. The limitation to eight threads of this option seems utterly artificial. I would like to have the opportunity to test -cgthreads16 and even -cgthreads40 ! Please remove this limitation. Some of us have many cores and would like their linking time below the 1 minute threshold.

                                  • Enforce extension to load asynchronously and run in separate process

                                    It is great to have rich extension from community. However, one of the consequence is that extension may not be running in a good performance, or compatible with IDE and other extension, and this lead to bad performance or UI unresponsive of IDE, especially the Editor.

                                    I hope there is a way that Visual Studio will:
                                    1. Load extension asynchronously
                                    2. Run each extension in separate process.

                                    In this way, the benefits are:
                                    1. Visual Studio IDE will not be impacted by extension
                                    2. If one of extension is running unwell, then user can directly kill that extension process, rather…
