'Restart Now' button should distinguish between OS restart and VS restart
This suggestion is migrated to Developer Community. Please use below link to view the current status.
When installing or updating a VSIX, the user is often prompted to "Restart Now" which is a terrifying proposition because there's really no way of knowing what Visual Studio means.
Does it mean restart Visual Studio? If so that's annoying but not a big deal.
Does it mean restart the Vsix? If so, that's so trivial why bother asking.
Does it mean restart Windows? If so, then no: my OS is busy doing things I need it to do.
Not knowing is a punishment to users of Visual Studio. The text on the button should be clear and concise.
Thanks – I’ve forwarded this feedback and we’ll consider for the next version.
For the avoidance of doubt, it does mean “restart Visual Studio”.
