Customize your Start Page in Visual Studio 2010

now, visual Studio 2010 is integrated with WPF (Windows Presentation Foundation) so we can use XAML extinctions now with our new Visual Studio in our IDE. In this post I will tell you how to customize your visual studio 2010 start page.

Open startpage template solution
Actually, Visual Studio 2010 read the design for start page from the following path
C:\Users\TFSREPORTS\Documents\Visual Studio 10\Projects\StartPages\StartPage.xaml

Note, if you don’t have this solution in the above path you can find it in this path
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\common7\ide\startpage\en\

Or you can download it from here.

Update the startpage.xaml
now I think you are opening your solution, so let’s start
just add or delete or rename any links in you startpage.xaml file and save your updates. Then you will find immediately the new changes happen to and startpage in your projects.
Have your start page for the new visual studio as you like.

Good bye
