Visual Studio IDE

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!

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.

  1. Make sure your products work with your products....

    When I go to the subscriber portal for MSDN/VisualStudio(and many other Microsoft products) using Microsoft Internet Explorer or edge, the page is either not available, or has incorrect/wrong information in it.
    But, when I use a competitors product, I get the correct information. That seems wrong to me.

        • Provide the ability to search constants in source as you do already for identifiers

          In the IDE we can do stuff like "find all references" and "rename" etc which are operations we can perform on identifiers (in say C#).

          What's missing is similar support for constants, string literals, integers etc.

          If we could do a "find all references" for the 10 in the following statement:

          var limit = 10;

          then we could find everywhere that someone has coded the integer constant 10.

          This is powerful because it allows us to refactor or reduce risky code by ensuring we can find all cases where this is done.

          Or what about these search features:

          - Find…

          • Allow the "this" keyword to be used in C# extension methods

            For instance, instead of saying

            public static void DoStuff(this object o)
            {
            o.DoStuff();
            }

            an alternate syntax could be:

            public static void DoStuff(this object)
            {
            this.DoStuff();
            }

            or even

            public static void DoStuff(this object)
            {
            DoStuff();
            }

            This would make refactoring instance methods into extension methods much easier.

            • Move the C++ project "run code analysis on only" menu item from the "Project Only" sub-menu to the "Analyze" sub-menu

              For C++ projects, in the Solution Explorer pane, the Code Analysis option is hidden under the "Project Only" sub-menu. For other project types, the equivalent functionality is under the "Analyze" sub-menu.

              It'd be much more logical to be under the Analyze sub-menu, and consistent with other project types too.

              • "openVR" it would be cool to have an Open source VR Driver, like DirectX, OpenGL

                "openVR" it would be cool to have an Open source VR Driver, like DirectX, OpenGL
                This will give companies the possibility to make their own VR products, but have drivers for them on windows, just like DirectX or openGL did with nVidia and AMD.

                  • Sharing resources for a task

                    Sharing multiple resource to a task is not currently possible in TFS2013. In my Agile development project, developers often share a task and as such I need to duplicate a task with different resources in order to capture an accurate burndown chart.

                      • プロジェクト作成時オートフォーマット効かない設定が欲しい

                        C# にてプロジェクトテンプレートで作成したプロジェクトを
                        新規追加したときにオートフォーマットでソースのスペースなど
                        いろいろ整形されてしまうので、
                        それが行われない設定を追加して欲しいです。

                        オプションのテキストエディター項目にあるオートフォーマットの
                        項目は全て外してあってもプロジェクト新規追加時には効きませんでした。

                        • Decrease download size from 40 gb. Think smartly make it pice by pice.

                          Make VS decentralize.
                          1. VS - WEB/MOBILE - asp.net + xamarin

                          2. VS - STAND ALONE .net + wpf +
                          like this this is for download only, after install all will be added to Main VS package. and make xamarin bug free.
                          I have install windows 10 fresh and install VS 2017 version 15.7.4 and create an new xamarin forms project. But sorry to say that the project cnt run in emulatore showing error.

                            • Dont show error in parent IF statement while typing a sub if statement.

                              The IDE starting with 2015 is showing an IF statement as an error while creating another statement inside of it. This takes focus away from what im doing, can the IDE wait until i finish the current line before deciding im going to forget the "END IF" for a nested statement, after all, its going to be added automatically. So i fail to see why this is even occuring.

                              If 1=1 THEN <---- This line has red squigly.
                              IF 2=2 TH... <----Im typing here

                              END IF

                              • Adding usings to the project on save.

                                Instead of manually having to add using statements which maybe missing. Add the usings when the developer save the solution, project, file.

                                      • VS should remember the window position on reboot

                                        After a reboot VS keeps going full screen one of my side screens instead of where I was last working. It does this until I reposition and exit in the session .... then it forgets it all on reboot

                                        • The path of references is not written in "csproj" !!

                                          Improve Nuget correction on different computers. The path of references is not written in csproj. I already have a certain default folder. You do not know this job the Nuget Team.
