Easily switch to different Visual Studio settings when...
  • your laptop is docked, or when it's undocked and you're on the go.
  • giving a live presentation.
  • recording a how-to video.
  • working on open source software with different code formatting requirements.
  • an update to Visual Studio or a bad VS extension resets your desired settings.

Features

    • Selecting an item in the drop-down list immediately imports those settings into Visual Studio.
    • Export Current Settings Button.png Export Current Settings saves the current settings to a file.
    • Export Solution Settings Button.png New: Export Solution Settings saves the current settings to the active solution's settings file, or creates a new Solution Settings File and adds it to the solution.
