Continuing on from a previous post that looked at the Environment Settings of Visual Studio, here is my take on some Project and Solution areas that I have customized:


Tools – Options – Projects and Solutions – General




Notice, I have changed the locations where my projects go.  Also, I moved my templates location to a custom area that I back up nightly to a removable drive. I have also turned off the Track Active Item, and Show Output Window.  Just extra noise to me.


Tools – Options – Projects and Solutions – Build and Run

This area has only one feature that I changed and that is the build output verbosity. 


Notice in the picture there is also a VB Defaults area that sets information like Option Explicit, etc…
