Visual Studio IDE

Announcement: In the beginning of October, we will move ideas to the Visual Studio Developer Community where users already report and track their issues. We’ll track them using a brand new suggestion experience which will preserve the current number of votes and supporters as tags . These numbers will continue to be used in understanding the community impact of the ideas. The move is aimed at providing a single platform for all your feedback and improve your engagement with Visual Studio product teams. After the move, this UserVoice site will become read only and new suggestions can be added on Developer Community.

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.

    • Ability to track/debug memory leak, access violation and segmentation errors in C++

      Currently to track or debug memory leaks, access violations and segmentation errors in C++ it is not possible, however third party tools from Intel and other vendors can, but they are clunky.

      Microsoft has the technology to provide this in Visual Studio and should look at adding it.

        • Take more time to test Visual studio releases

          Recently Visual studio 15.7 released and then in few days 15.7.1.
          Take bit more time and test the tool for satisfying level, since it has been used by lot of users and these type of releases will give bad impression and scariness too.

            • File rename should 'git mv'

              When I rename a .cs file from Solution Explorer, sadly (a command-line run of) 'git status' says I have one deleted file and one untracked one. Then I have to manually xcopy the new back to the old and 'git mv -f'.
              An option to reflect the re-name in the source-control system would be nice.

                  • Add support for removing dependent components in Visual Studio Installer

                    When you uncheck some components, warning about dependent components is displayed. There should be option to remove these dependent components too.

                    • Correct Bugs

                      Я предлагаю исправить для начала баги.

                      Мои замечания не будут столь глобальными, но они указывают на небольшие недоделки, которые связаны с удобством работы.

                      1. Отсутствует поддержка сенсорной прокрутки. Почему я на своём любимом ноуте не могу позволить себе листать пальцем код?! Нет, вообще отклик есть - после завершения манипуляции начинается быстрая прокрутка. Эмм. Гадость :(
                      2. При некорректном завершении работы Blend'а (например, выключить компьютер) и дальнейшей загрузки проекта, с которым работал, удаляется в некоторых случаях содержимое файла проекта .csproj. Ужс.

                      • Provide Collapse All for Error List Window When Grouped

                        I can group Error List items by certain fields but there's no Collapse All / Expand All. This is really painful after saying turning on Code Analysis when you're wading through thousands of items. I understand there could be a performance consideration but...

                          • SQL Explorer is very slow - could it be faster?

                            The SQL Explorer is VS 17 (Community version in my case) is pretty slow. Browsing the db structure or viewing data is somewhat frustrating.

                            I dont think SSMS is this bad.

                                • Code reuse (bridges) for WPF->UWP

                                  Since 2009 I moved from Windows Forms(used since 2003) to WPF, many things had changed but it was possible to port a Modbus/TCP, multithread, SCADA application, to the new era of modern UI called WPF (some equivalents existed so far, managed dlls (.net class librarys) was ok, and at least networking and database was almost ok). The main reason for me to go to UWP is to be able to port some functionality to ARM based devices. Now in UWP the application model and the object model has changed so much and also equivalents are not even close... How to…

                                      • Require js, system js amd module support

                                        Hello there,

                                        In Visual Studio 2017, Require Js and System Js-like Amd module loaders do not work intellisense.
                                        Would you add this support?

                                        • Unpromote package from Release view at TFS 2018

                                          I add package to feed with version 1 and promote it to @Release view.

                                          Then, i add package to feed with version 2 and promote it to @Release_1.

                                          Then, i want to remove package from @Release_1 view (and, may be, promote it to @Release_2 ) . But i can not find how to do that
