How did I know this?
As a Chrome browser fan, my default system web browser is Chrome.
This leads me to a bothering experience when developing web on ASP.Net technology – when running an ASP.Net project, Chrome always opened to run. This is not preferred to run an ASP.Net web page from Internet Explorer (IE) since the technology is optimized for that browser.
So, what I need is 1) to keep still the OS’s default browser to be Chrome and 2) the browser automatically-run when executed from Visual Studio IDE is IE. Here’s how.
First right click a page
Then, select `Browse With…`
Then, select IE and set it as the default browser
Hope it is helpful to you!
Here are steps to get your IDE be able to use the TFS Proxy feature which helps the getting-latest process be much faster! The main idea is to add a proxy server so that every time we need a get-latest, the content to download will be downloaded from the proxy server; only when the proxy server is outdated, i.e. the latest codes revision number is higher/more recent than the proxy, a direct download to TFS server (the real server other than the proxy we are talking about) is executed.
You need to know the proxy server’s name/IP and port number to proceed – often given by the system administrator at your office, please ask them.
In Contemi Vietnam we use the below information.
1. Open the VS TFS option
- Open menu Tools – Option – Source Control – Visual Studio Team Foundation Server
If you have install Visual Studio Productivity extension, you can call Ctrl-3 to bring up the Quick Access box and enter Visual Studio Team Foundation Server and go directly to the option.
2. Enter the server name/IP and port number.
Hope this helps,
