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".
(thinking…)

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.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

    As of Nov 2014, you can now use VS Community 2013 for this: https://www.visualstudio.com/en-us/products/visual-studio-community-vs. VS Community is a free, extensible edition of Visual Studio which you can use to develop for multiple platforms. It works with any of the available extensions in the VS Gallery: https://visualstudiogallery.msdn.microsoft.com/. We’ve seen quite a few users choosing to do their Python development by installing PTVS with this tool.

  3. Please make Visual Studio for Linux versions supporting GCC compilers

    Visual Studio being immensely popular among Windows developers, you have already extended it to support Android platform, why not support Linux with GCC compilers collections. All you have to do is to invoke GCC compiler, GDB debugger and show it's messages/errors/warnings while compiling. There is not much changes you have to do to accomplish that. Or you can make Visual Studio Code to do that. It does not support compiling in Linux just does browsing. If not make Visual Studio Code compile/debug GCC compilers.
