      Hello,

      We’ve begun work on this and are considering changing the default location for new projects to C:\\USERPROFILE\Source\repos. Would this be a reasonable change to address the problem of “clutter” in the Documents folder? This is currently the default for cloned repositories, so all projects would be in a singular default location.

      As well, you still retain the option to change the default if you’d like.

      To me the important changes are:
      1) Split the content so projects go to one location and VS cruft like snippets go to another.
      2) Allow user to override default location of project folder.
      3) Use the same name regardless of VS version to avoid future cruft.

          Making a project format that only works with ASP.NET makes very little sense. It should definitely be used for all project types, since all project types would benefit from it.
          The current list-all-source-files behavior is a major pain point, since it guarantees lots of nasty merge conflicts even for small teams.
