Previous to VS 2015 you could set the IDE to perform a GET when you open a solution. This is no longer available under source control options. It would be nice to have that feature back.3 votes
An operator where for multiple conditions on the same variable.
instead of writing
variable1 == "one" || variable1 == "two"
The same behaviour could be achieved by writing
variable1 == "one" ||| "two"
Both mean "variable1 equals one or two"
But the second syntax is more natural and shorter to write.1 vote
Support the Setup and Deployment tool you had in 2013 - Why is Flexera's software being forced on everyone?
Would it be possible for VS 2015 to load the Setup and Deployment projects developed in VS 2013?1 vote
IntelliTest is still using an old Z3 version. Z3 has had many improvements since then. Please update to the latest version in order to improve performance.6 votes
It is often necessary to delete generated testes from the g.cs files. I think this should be an easily available feature.
It should be accessible here:
* A button in the IntelliTest tool window that clears the g.cs file for the currently selected method.
* A button in the IntelliTest tool window that opens a dialog where the user can choose:
- delete tests from this method/class/project/solution
- delete files or just clear them (might be important for source control)
The same features should be available as context menu items in IntelliTest-related files.3 votes
Exceptions are not visible anymore in the Visual Studio 2015 IntelliSense list members dialog.
Please bring this back.

How about adding a code.cs.test file with a code.cs file packaged the same way WPF package a *.xaml and *.xaml.cs file together?
That way your tests are close to the code, and you don't need to navigate to a seperate test project10 votes
I often have places in a program that I am debugging where I know that exceptions are going to take place. I would like to be able to break on all exceptions, and when one does occur that I know is ok to tell the debugger not to break, on that exception at that location in the program. I still want to break on all other time the exception occurs.
It sort of a funny type of break point with an automatic continue.1 vote
It would be cool if we can add qbasic programming in visual studio.
I like to have an option to create or program visualstyles for the taskbar using visual studio.3 votes
Often, when submitting a code review request the requested developers cannot immediately respond due to prior commitments. If the delay lasts more than a day or so, there is a real danger that the original request is lost in the noise.
Add functionality so that TFS will send out a reminder e.g.
"You were requested to perform a code review on mm/dd/yyyy. Please accept or decline this request as soon as practical>1 vote
Revert back to method of formatting Field Encapsulation where inserted code is on line after cursor instead of end of file. In VS2015, I now have to go to the end of the file, select, cut, and go back to my insert position an paste. Makes the advantage of automatic field encapsulation worthless.3 votes
Please allow for exclusion of files and folders in the Solution Explorer. This is not exclusion from a project - I am using a website in my screenshot - but from the Solution Explorer view itself.
Having directories such as bower_components and node_modules present in the IDE doesn't serve a purpose but appears to take a toll on time when searching for files, opening the solution, etc.9 votes
Since Universal Windows is the development platform for all Windows devices; it would extremely helpful if Visual Studio 2015 supported Code Coverage and IntelliTest for Universal Windows applications.3 votes
In the new Team Foundation Build 2015 (https://msdn.microsoft.com/Library/vs/alm/Build/feature-overview) we can either add CI triggers that trigger a build with every check-in or we have the Scheduled triggers. It would be nice to have an option in the Scheduled Triggers that it only runs if there were changes since the last run (new ChangeSet).
We could use this since we build our Xamarin app with the new build server and publish it to the alpha track in the PlayStore, but we only want to do this once a day and only if there were changes since the last build.19 votes
I'm sure this has been suggested one way or the other but here goes anyway. How about adding a *.test file with a *.cs file packaged the same way WPF package a *.xaml and *.xaml.cs file together? That way your tests are close to the code19 votes
