Did you know that Visual Studio 2010 was rewritten using WPF ?
As an Editor , there is an improved focus on writing and understanding , navigating and publishing code .
As an Platform , developers can create addons to extend the behaviour of the IDE.
Here are some of them in the Start page,
Unlike the other visual studio versions , here we could perform a bunch of operations on the Recent items.
1. Open Project
– Opens the project in Visual Studio 2010.
2. Open Containing Folder
– Opens the folder that contains the project and project files.
3. Remove From List
– Removes the project from the Recent Projects list.
There is also an option to pin/unpin the project in the Recent Project list.
When the project is pinned ,the project stays in the list even when many new projects are created .
The content area also contains various links / resources to Get Started with the Visual Studio 2010 and .NET 4.0 Development .
