In a much earlier tip, I talked about how to create a command window alias and how to view them.
Since we’re in the profile tip series, here’s how you can export your saved command window aliases.
Go to Tools – Import / Export Settings – Export Settings, and in the list, you’ll see the Command Window Aliases checkbox. This will export this list in the picture above to a .vssettings file.
The best part is that the content in human-editable in the .vssettings file. If you want to make an tweaks, like a rename, or add your own, you can do it manually at the .vssettings file level.
