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.

  1. Show everything in English

    Please, please, please. I live in Mexico and speak Spanish. However, since I'm technical guy, I want to read everything in English. Many, many, many technical terms are not applicable or translatable. I hate to read in Spanish when developing or researching about a technical topic. That's why I prefer to sign out msdn page!
    Please, please, please!
    Thank you!

  2. 关于代码自动补全功能的建议

    可以设置自动补全的优先度,例如提高变量、局部变量、使用频率高的变量函数的优先度,以提高自动补全的效率。我不希望输入cout时输到第四个字母才出现补全代码。

  3. Search With Bing or Google

    Hey there should be option when i right click on a code or line along with given options of rename etc one option should be of search with bing or google or any other engine sometimes while reading other developers code we don't know a particular function does so there should be a option to directly search that line or the command so the user can read further about that and understand its functionality.

  6. Printing Workitems on Team Foundation Server 2015

    Hi,

    We have an on-premise deployment of Team Foundation Server 2015. I don't see a functionality to print work-items in TFS.
    I understand it's a bit lousy requirement (keeping in mind all the elements of a work-item viz. History, Attachments, Links, etc.), but I believe, sequentially everything can be printed.
    or,
    user can be given option to select what all to be printed apart from the basic details of the work item.
    Thanks
    Yogesh

  10. Support multi-factor authentication in SQL Server Object Explorer when adding a SQL Server.

    In SSMS, for example, the option "Active Directory Universal Authentication" exists and works great. In Visual Studio SQL Server Object Explorer you don't have that option.

  11. Remove the usage of user profiles.

    They serve no purpose towards users. Using an activation code was more than enough, the user profile is an invasion to privacy.

  12. I would suggest less 'light' and more 'dark' for all typography for readers over 35.

    Who decided that contrast in typography was evil, that typography should be narrow (saving ink?), any color that blends into the background (ever see a billboard with those criteria? Would you purchase a good book you REALLY wanted to read, with 8 point type in light gray? Please folks, this is an exercise in critical thinking, and you have decided on pastel. Check with the folks at Microsoft who sell add space, and ask them if their customers demand 'light blue' text. On this page, the background is '255' while the only '000' is in the title and text of…

  16. Fix Visual studio Account Sign In

    See here the error and the solution: https://developercommunity.visualstudio.com/content/problem/7675/cant-sign-into-accounts.html?childToView=17494

    This error appear to me after a Visual Studio 2017 Migration from 2015.

    For an unknown reason Visual Studio 2017 sets Chinese endpoints in registry for sign in.
    The endpoints are wrong and it's impossible to sign in with Visual Studio Account.

    Please Microsoft fix this issue.

  17. Fix two things in the VS extensions marketplace

    There are two issues with Market Place for extensions
    1) You need to provide the details for each extension in a 2nd part of the screen... we don't want to have to click to another page to just read the details of each extension (it really breaks up the flow)... I think this is how its done in the VS application when looking at extensions...
    2) Because the page is an infinite scrolling page, i.e. the more scroll the more it loads its impossible to get to the page footer and click the link contact us.... I know its minor…

  19. Make the offline installer available

    You cannot expect people with slow internet connection speed to download 8 GB worth of installation files in one go unless you lost the common sense somewhere. Don't become Apple.

    Provide an Offline Installer with selective downloads through torrent or direct download for community edition. Or you can provide resume support in your UI installer which would be worth while effort.
