VS2013 annoyances

VS2013 annoyances

Visual Studio 2013 is by-and-large a pretty nice development environment, but there are at least 2 things that REALLY annoy me.

1. Changed all the default hot keys.  I mean – really?  You just change all the standard hot keys that you’ve used for, oh, I don’t know, the last 3 releases for….no good reason at all?  I’ve had to go back and reset a lot of them.  Why?  I can’t think of any good reason to change defaults you’ve used forever.  If people want to change them, let them change them through the keyboard configurations.

2. Automatically switching to Error List when Visual Studio completes compiling.  Maybe I’m just old-fashioned, but I need to see the Output panel – NOT Error List.

Here’s how to change it back:
1. Tools -> Options -> Projects and Solutions -> General
2. uncheck ‘Always show Error List if build finishes with errors
