Diff All Files Visual Studio Extension Description

A Visual Studio extension to quickly and easily compare all files in Git (a commit or staged/unstaged files) or TFS (a changeset, shelveset, or files with pending changes) to see what was changed. Instead of clicking on each file individually and choosing to compare it with a different version, just click one button to compare all of the files.

This extension adds a new control into the Team Explorer pane wherever Visual Studio shows what files have changes. You may edit the extension's settings from the Tools -> Options... -> Diff All Files settings page.

Download this extension for Visual Studio 2017, 2015, 2013, or 2012 from the VS Extension Gallery.


  • Compare files one at a time, many files at a time, or with all files combined in a single file.
  • Uses the same diff (i.e. compare) tool that you have configured in your .gitconfig (for Git) and Visual Studio (for TFVC). e.g. KDiff, Beyond Compare, Visual Studio, etc.
  • Settings to exclude comparing files with specific extensions, or files that have been added or deleted from source control.
  • Button to quickly close all diff tool windows that have been opened.
  • Remaining files to be compared will open automatically when current file diff windows are closed.
  • Specify the file versions to compare against (i.e. Unmodified, Workspace, Previous, Latest).
  • Supports both Git and TFVC source control providers.
