Did you know… You can save your Menu and Command Bar customizations to a file? – #252


A while back, I did a series of tips on how to customize your Menus and Command bar.  Some of these included how to make a toolbar floating, how to drag and drop toolbar buttons, and change commands on context menus.

Visual Studio Menu and Command Bars

You can save just your menu, command bar, and context menu settings to a file.  Go to Tools – Import / Export Settings – Export, and under All Settings – General Settings you can check Menu and Command Bar Customizations

Menu and Command Bar Customizations

Now you can keep your command bars and menu customizations on the side if you ever need them.

    Thank you for these settings tips.  They really helped make me feel safe when I went to start messing with my environment.

    And, as for the pictures, I have that problem, too.  I like to call it the "overgrin," where your smile is so big that your cheeks get in the way of your eyes. πŸ˜€
