    You can use the Developer Command Prompt for Visual Studio 2017. As long as you or your admin has set the Administer workspaces permission to Allow you can run the following commands.

    Get the status of everything. You can of course limit this by including the user's name or the path to folder:
    tf status "$/" /user:* /recursive

    This link has how to use the undo. You will see a few examples of going directly to a file, folder etc and using recursive flag. By specifying the workspace (server/user) you can undo someone else's checkouts.

    I too found it incredible that this was not in VS 2017, especially when they also dropped power tools.

    MS - please add this into the 'merged' power tools functionality in TFS. It was the primary reason I had TFS power tools installed previously.

    Any new on this. We just migrated to Visual Studio 2017. And I discovered that this is missing. I am not sure if I will not revert to Visual Studio 2015

    Still waiting for this "basic" functionality in 2017 that existed for many years and is inexplicably missing from "newer" version...
