Visual Studio Settings Switcher

Easily switch to different Visual Studio settings when...

  • docking your laptop, or when it's undocked and you're on the go.
  • presenting a live screencast.
  • 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.


  • Solution Settings Files: Whenever a solution is opened, if a settings file of the same name (Solution_Name.vssettings) exists next to the solution file (Solution_Name.sln), its settings are automatically applied.
  • Associates the current settings with the active solution. The associated settings will be applied automatically whenever the solution is opened. (Overrides the active Solution Settings File without modifying it.)
  • Provides a toolbar (shown above).
    • Selecting an item in the drop-down list immediately imports those settings into Visual Studio.
    • ![Export Current Settings](../../wiki/Images/Export Current Settings Button.png) Export Current Settings saves the current settings to a file.
    • ![Export Solution Settings](../../wiki/Images/Export Solution Settings Button.png) 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.
    • ![Format Solution ](../../wiki/Images/Format Solution Button.png) Format Solution formats all documents in the solution according to the current settings.

See the Wiki for details.


This extension is based on a tip from Sara Ford's blog.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
