      • Override default system keyboard layout

        It would be lovely if I could tell VS to override whichever keyboard layout the system uses, and to always use the one I tell it to instead, particularly if this setting was synced across computers!
        While Windows supports several layouts and has a per-app setting, it won't remember the last used layout on VS, and it won't share the setting with other VS instances. It can also get pretty easy to mess it up while working on other windows and switching layouts back and forth.

        • Folder Bookmarks

          Make it possible to mark often used folders in Project Explorer as a favorite. Like in Outlooks Favorites.

          Then create a quickmenu in style of Windows + Tab to quick switch between the bookmarked folders to open in Project Explorer.

          This is useful when working with MVC or Razor Pages when you have lots of folders.

          • Hide status bar

            Hello!
            It would be great if the blue bar on the bottom could be hidden.
            The bright color can be very distracting in certain lighting conditions and it's always better to have more space if you need it.

            • "open to the side" shortcut when selecting file with ctrl+tab

              when I am switching to another file using keyboard shortcut "ctrl+tab" (on OSX) it would be great if I could open the file to the side, for eg for quick compare or when I'll be working with 2 files side by side.

              I also couldn't find any shortcut to change focus between the 2, or 3 panels

              • allow scrolling past both ends of the document to center content vertically on large TVs with low vision users

                Being visually impaired, using a large TV as my computer screen, it would be helpful to have an option to be able to scroll a document before the content just as you're able to fully scroll past the end of the document. This would allow me to see the code in the center of the screen where my gaze is centered and focused already; I'm certain others wouldn't mind this option either.

                  Make Ctrl-F search box not send you back to editor after last result. This makes me accidentally delete code all the time. I hit enter looking for next result, but don't realize I am now deleting the last thing it found.

                    • Prepare a thorough and extensive user manual for blind users who are intrested to code via Visual Studio using JAWS/NVDA screen readers.

                      I would really appreciate if a manual pertaining to accessibilityof visual studio can be made available with thorough instructions on using it with screen readers like JAWS/NVDA and settings/customization required in the IDE for screen-reader access. Thanks.

                      • Keep in mind developers using a vertical monitor for development

                        The editor works well if its used within a landscape monitor, but not a portrait monitor. It would be great if the Portrait monitor experience is optimized.

                        • Support side scrolling while designing an app, I use a Logitech MX Master, with a side scroll wheel.

                          Add support for side scrolling wheels. For example, MX Master mouse. I am designing the layout of my app, but can not sidescroll using that wheel, I have to use the slider.

                              • Allow read access to Git without being a member of the project Readers group

                                I would like to be able to add a group or user to the Readers Security group for a Git Repo without having that same group being a member of the project's Readers group.

                                There are times when we would like to read only grant access to a repo without granting access to Work items.

                                  • Downloads page filter from new to old

                                    Hi,

                                    On the downloads page, in most categories I see lots of listing, but some of the products/software/tools were released as far back as 2000, I find it strange to see the 2017 listings below the release date of 2000.

                                    I would appreciate if you can add either a filter for years (dropdown checkboxes) or allow a sort by (dropdown) feature by the year in descending order.

                                    Thanks

                                          - Automatic alerts to user and lead…
