Why for every new VS do I need to find and reopen every little tool window (ex Error List, Output, Bookmarks, Breakpoints, ...) and tear them off, stack them up, size and arrange them all over again to get the working environment and layout I want that works for me on my multiple monitors with various sizes?
VS should be able to tell that it is brand new (no layout saved) and look for a layout from prior VS versions to start with!1 vote
It would be great if the Visual Studio Debugger attaches to a specified process if it starts.
To debug a windows service we put debugger.attach to the start-point, compile an replace the .exe of the windows service.
So Visual Studio could implement a "process attacher" which automatically attachs to a process with a specified name if this process starts.
With this feature VS could be configured to attach to every process on process start. Especially if you have an application which starts another process with Process.Start or start a windows service mentioned above4 votes

At present you can ignore spaces in declaration statements but I also like to space out (align) other statements.
For instance assignments:
var1 = 1;
vartwo = "two";
longvariable = 3;
And also event attachment.
myevent += handler;
alongevent += handler;
yetanotherevent += handler;
When I reformat a document at the moment, all those additional spaces get removed.5 votes
Please, can you finally fix it and allow to have alternateive location of VC.db files?!
VS by default likes to polluting source folders with temp/output folders, but that's easy to modify, however VS still produces GIANT files that will always be inside source folder, which is unacceptable. Can you provide an option to place these files elsewhere (preferably in IntDir or something like that. Note, I'm aware about possibility make them use alternate location (e.g. TEMP), but that applies to all projects then.4 votes
VS2017 features a new exception dialog, which automatically displays inner exception information. However, certain exception types such as ReflectionTypeLoadException does not store useful information in inner exception, but in its LoaderException property. Hope the dialog can be extended to allow expanding such properties automatically.1 vote

On progress bar for VS instalation percentage done, instead of counting how many files has copied and/or extracted use how many data has been copied and use something like 28.16% done because the installation is awfully slow on a fresh Win 10 machine. If you implement this the user will see at least some progress and will know that something is going on instead now its looking like installation is stacked somewhere and frozen.4 votes

In Visual Studio 2013, when you had checked out a branch to work on in Team Explorer, and went to the home tab, Visual Studio would search for solutions contained in the directory and display them in the Solutions section of the Home tab. This no longer happens, and you now have to select the Open option and browse for the solution. It's not many extra step, but they are steps you now have to take every time you open Visual Studio.1 vote
We need a quick Visual Studio shortcut to attach to an existing w3wp IIS process for a page that is already loaded.
Currently we always have to press Tools > Attach to Process > W3WP process ID (even if there is only one w3wp process running)
This would be different from the Continue/Play button which builds the project before loading the page.3 votes
This is a direct copy of a suggestion that was closed below is the exact text of the old suggestion. It was closed with a comment to reopen if still relevant. I have a hard time coming up with reason why this isn't already an option.
Currently, the Create GUID tool has six different options for copying a new GUID in a particular format. Please add a seventh option: no decoration, just the GUID itself. I find myself frequently copying a GUID in Registry format and then removing the curly braces. Thanks!1 vote
In Asp.net Web Form we have .aspx, .cs & designer.cs page; similarly we can have .css and .js file for each form as there are situation where we have to write page/form specific css and java script.
benefit is that we can access server side control in separate file. so it make easier to understand similar for css we can bind control specific css by accesing control directly. but its must be at client end.
more easily we can do some client side scripting by accessing controls in .js file.3 votes

Monochrome icons are not a good idea. No matter what colour you pick, they are going to blend into the background and be indistinguishable for some users.
The VS 2017 product icons look particularly bad on the start menu. Which, surely, is one place you really want them to look good!6 votes

When we perform a layout to install VS 2015. When I start VS 2015, I still have items that need updating. This includes a old SSDT that does not include BI. The time it takes to update SSDT is significant.
Please add the newest SSDT version install packages to the VS 2015 so that we don't need to update when the installation is finished.2 votes
