Open Visual Studio with Source Control Explorer open
If you find yourself constantly opening Source Control Explorer, you may want to use this handy shortcut to opening Visual Studio with the Source Control Explorer open, instead of the Start Page.
Open the properties for your Visual Studio shortcut and change this:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\Common7\IDE\devenv.exe"
And change it by adding the command flag shown below:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\Common7\IDE\devenv.exe" /Command View.TfsSourceControlExplorer
Now when you open Visual Studio you’ll be able to get straight to work.
