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".

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. Visual Studio 2017 PowerShell Immediate Window does not appear

    Haven´t tested in the English version, but in the Spanish one If I try to open the PowerShell immediate Window (by View>Other Windows>PowerShell Immediate Window) it just doesn´t do anything. I just switched to VS 2015 since I do a lot of PowerShell projects.

  2. I recently stumbled across https://studio.tellme.com/

    It seems like a pretty good IVR development resource, having written voicexml in the past, its no walk in the park. However it doesn't seem to have been updated since 2008. What is the status - should we start using it, or is it yet another good idea about to be canned?

  3. Provide the same syntax highlighting for a .inx that .inf uses in VS2017

    .inx files are compiled into .inf files when making a driver.
    When creating a new kmdf project, a .inf file is generated for you that contains syntax colors for the various fields in the file. Changing the extension to .inx removes the syntax coloring.
    Provide the same syntax coloring for .inx files that the .inf file uses.

  6. Please add Java as a language to Visual Studio

    Java is an amazing language and combining it with the power, flexibility, and utility of Visual Studio could do wonders. Visual Studio is the best IDE I've seen or heard of. Please add Java support and make it even better.

  7. Add more compilers and windows builder for these languages

    I wonder why is it so difficult for Microsoft as a large software company to add more compilers and a Windows GUI Builder for the following languages - Perl, Ruby, Scheme, and Prolog. By any measure VS is easier to use than Eclipse, when it comes to configuring the Ant built tool.

  10. Work on making integration with Gulp build tool (Node.js) more seamless.

    I had to do a lot of crazy stuff to make Visual Studio 2017 and Gulp work together. That is because Gulp is building the .ts files and Visual Studio interferes with it.

    1. Use "From Existing Node Project" and uncheck "Create Directory For Solution".
    TASK RUNNER EXPLORER COMES INTEGRATED IN VS 2017!
    2. Set server.ts as node.js startup file
    3. IMPORTANT! Go to Tools > Options > Projects and Solutions > External Tools Set Visual Studio Code to use external node.js or next step won't work and you'll get errors about the version of node.js, sass, etc. I explicitly…

  11. Silently download support for the user's current version of TypeScript rather than suggest they upgrade to latest.

    When you open a solution containing an older version of TypeScript, VS suggests you upgrade to the version it has installed.
    I think it should be the other way around, VS should silently get the bits needed for the version the user has.

  16. Add restrict keyword to intellisense

    I would like to see the C11 keyword restrict added to intellisense. You'd say, why, we don't have a C11 compiler! I use Clang/LLVM with VS2017. Clang does support C11, however. It can easily be added, as there is no requirement that restrict does anything at all (actually the program is supposed to run exactly (functionally) as if that keyword we're not there, that's a requirement). It just looks so ugly when there are squiggly lines all over the place, and often those interfere with other valid code.

  17. open source Visual Foxpro

    Used Fox technologies since 2.11 in DOS days. It would be great to open up the source to the community as a GitHUB project. I'm sure finding volunteers to contribute to it would be easy.

  18. css

    Editing large minified CSS files slow down Visual Studio extremely as the whole file is in one large line (tested with Sharepoint CORE15.css -file - size is around 300kb).

    Once the file has been formatted to multiline the performance works normally.

    Can the performance with long single line CSS files be improved as the openingn of the minified file and reformatting it takes a lot of time.

  19. Syntax highlighting for PowerShell pssc files

    PowerShell pssc files does not show text in colors (syntax highlighting) like other PowerShell files, such as ps1. Support full intelisense/syntax color for PSSC.
