To learn more about the migration to Visual Studio Developer Community please check out the release blog post.

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.

We look forward to hearing from you!

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".

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.

  1. Independent code window zooming

    Since many people develop on a laptop and have an external monitor, depending on workstation setup, sometimes the laptop monitor can be further away than the desktop (or I suppose vice versa) and the text on the further away monitor is "smaller" and difficult to see. Therefore, I'm reviving a previously closed suggestion to allow Visual Studio to independently set the zoom level on code editors -- e.g. code editors' zoom level is NOT synchronized with one another.

  2. Visual Studio REST API support to fetch the list of allowed values for drop down fields like Priority, Status.

    Please provide the REST API support to fetch the list of allowed values for drop down fields like Priority, Status , etc.
    Using SDK this option is available but not available under REST API.

  4. Increase size of Recent projects area in Start Page

    This suggestion is migrated to Developer Community. Please use below link to view the current status.
    https://developercommunity.visualstudio.com/content/idea/351783/increase-size-of-recent-projects-area-in-start-pag.html
    I've increased the Visual Studio font a little. On the Start Page, the list of recent projects now shows just a single item with a tiny scrollbar next to it.

    On the other hand, the "Getting Started" list is huge, has no scrollbar and I have never once looked at it.

    * The headings do not need to be so big
    * i'd prefer Recent projects to be the first thing I see.
    * If the Recent list was not a scrolling region…

  6. Touch mode in visual studio

    I suggest an optional touch mode in visual studio resembling the feature presently in Microsoft office apps providing better spacing and larger options when turned on. The present interface in visual studio is too closely packed making it's use a bit tedious in touch screen laptops and tablets.

  7. Cambiar el color del tema al compartir un mapa de código

    Si se utiliza el tema oscuro, en los mapas de código se exporta el fondo negro al compartir (exportar a XPS o copiar imagen), que no es muy útil si se va a imprimir o incluir en un documento.

    Se debería permitir elegir el color de fondo de los mapas o exportarlos con el tema claro para que el fondo fuese blanco en la imagen copiada.

  8. Add a linker option switch to enable/disable ProductionID (Rich Signature) generation

    Add a linker option switch to enable/disable ProductionID (Rich Signature) generation for PE32/PE32+ output files

    The "Rich" signature can be found between the DOS and PE headers in a PE32/PE32+ image. It's said that the word "Rich" likely originated from "Richard Shupak" and "DanS" was likely attributed to employee "Dan Spalding" who presumably ran the linker team.

    Currently I can hack the link.exe to disable the generation of Rich Signature. However it's still basically manual work. It would be nice if the linker team would add a linker option such as "/PRODID:[ON|OFF]" to provide us users more choice on customizing…

  9. Consider testing DevOps on iOS

    Scrolling behaves unnaturally, usually because webkit overflow scrolling hasn’t been set.

  12. Make Ctrl+F scope to Current Document by default when showing

    Problem:

    I constantly use Ctrl+F a.k.a. the tiny-winy-search-box, to search for stuff when I code i Visual Studio. -- As others, I want things to go fast, that's why I use shortcuts. But when Ctrl+F - so helpfully - "remembers" the last search scope and sets "Entire Project" when I run a search (and my big solution almost hang because of it) -- that's when I get a little grumpy.

    Suggestion:

    - Add an option "Reset search scope to Current Document when closing Ctrl+F find boxy" (e.g. at Options > Environment > Find & Replace).

    By default the option is…

  13. when I try to add a reference in my project, VS should suggest a path belonging to the project.

    When I want to add a new reference to a project, I have to check first where the project is located because I know VS will not suggest a path belonging to the project necessarily and I think this could be improved by suggesting always the project main path as the source for the reference.

  14. Folder Bookmarks

    Make it possible to mark often used folders in Project Explorer as a favorite. Like in Outlooks Favorites.

    Then create a quickmenu in style of Windows + Tab to quick switch between the bookmarked folders to open in Project Explorer.

    This is useful when working with MVC or Razor Pages when you have lots of folders.

  16. How to use my Email id(Employee) without logout Admin credentials to post bugs in VS2017

    Hi, There is no option to use my mail id(Employee) to post issues on Visual Studio developer community.

    When I am creating an issue, by default office admin credentials appearing(VS owner). If I raise any bug, all further communication like comment & issues status would be sent on Admin Id only.
    If I am changing mail Id & using my mail Id, Admin credentails getting logout from VS & everytime I need to call him to login VS valid credential. How could I solve this issue.
    Thank you.
