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.

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

  3. Improve the accessibility of the Ctrl+Tab document switcher in VS

    When using Visual Studio with the NVDA screen reader, I can get no feedback when using ctrl+tab to move between open documents. I tried to script this using AppModules, but the UI for this is written in such a bizarre way that I couldn't get a hold of the right window to find the selected item to read it aloud. So I think this is something that can only be fixed on your end.

    Hello – We recently made a fix for the Ctrl+Tab document switcher in Visual Studio 2015 that should address the issues you were experiencing in 2013. Please take a look in 2015 and let us know if you are still having trouble.

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the feedback. When you have an unresolved type in your code, with red squigglies underneath, you can type [CTRL+.] to open the “lightbulb” menu, and the first option in there should be to add the “using” statement. Just press Return and it’s there. Does that work for you?
