      Hello everyone and thank you for the feedback. We are actively investigating ways to improve how Visual Studio handles project content. This suggestion falls into that category. Unfortunately, we will not be able to address this feedback for the Visual Studio 2015 release. We will update the community when our plans in this area have gained more clarity.

      @Nathan Black that's an amazing idea! We are building an angularjs app that has _nothing_ to do with asp.net. That being said, I love Visual Studio and want to continue using it as my daily development but I don't want to dictate to others which OS/IDE (if any) they should use. I'm considering treating the project as a web site instead of a web application which I think might solve the problem in a round-about way.

      This would really be great for teams that develop on different platforms for the same project. I love Visual Studio on Windows and others on my team use Sublime Text on a Mac. This would definitely make it a much better experience.

              They called it Enterprise Agile.

              It looks like this is coming in TFS 2013!!

                I agree that if code is commented out, delete it. That's what source control is for.

                  Hi Supporters

                  Work has started on including this feature in a future release of Visual Studio.

                  In line with many comments in this thread, we’re planning to provide a means to change the modifier from Ctrl+Click to other options for those who would like to keep Ctrl+Click for selecting words.

                  Thanks!

                    Think of the App_Start folder that is popping up all over the place. Also, I like to keep extension method classes in an Extensions folder but would really like to have the namespace be the root namespace. Great idea.

                        Build A succeeds -> Build B is triggered.
                        Personally I'd prefer to set this up in Build B to "watch" Build A then have Build A specify that Build B should be triggered.

                            Hi Supporters of this item,

                            We are considering making this available as an option in a future release of Visual Studio.

                            If this is made available, we expect the feature to need to be optional as there are many who prefer the current keybinding of Ctrl+W to stay as it is.

                            Thanks
                            Mark Wilson-Thomas

                            @Cesar this has long been a standard of tab-driven apps like web browsers.

                                I could get behind that one too.
