Visual Studio 2019 on Cloud

1-click AWS Deployment   1-click Azure Deployment 1-click Google Deployment


Visual Studio 2019 streamlines your experience so you can get right down to focused work. You’ll find more screen space for your code and you can search for anything from one place. You can keep your code tidy with one-click code clean-up. When you’re debugging, you’ll notice better stepping performance and you’ll get search capabilities within the Autos, Locals, and Watch windows to quickly find that elusive object or value.

It includes tools like Server Explorer and integration with Microsoft SQL Server also. Windows Mobile development support was included in Visual Studio 2005 Standard, however, with Visual Studio 2008, it is only available in Professional and higher editions. Windows Phone 7 development support was added to all editions in Visual Studio 2010. Development for Windows Mobile is no longer supported in Visual Studio 2010; it is superseded by Windows Phone 7.

Major Features of Visual Studio 2019

Personal and team productivity

It’s a given that performance improvements are top of mind with every release of Visual Studio, but right up there with it is improving your productivity. Here’s how we can help with that.

New start window

The first thing you’ll notice when you open Visual Studio 2019 is its new start window.

This new start window presents you with options to clone or check out code, open a project or solution, open a local folder, or create a new project. Having these options presented in a simple dialog helps both beginners and advanced Visual Studio users get to code quickly.

For more information, see the Get to code: How we designed the new Visual Studio start windowblog post.

Formerly known as Quick Launch, our new search experience is faster and more effective. Now, search results appear dynamically as you type. And, search results include keyboard shortcuts for commands, so that you can more easily memorize them for future use.

Whether you are looking for commands, settings, documentation, or other useful things, the new search feature makes it easier to find what you’re looking for.

One-click code cleanup

Paired with a new document health indicator is a new code cleanup command. You can use this new command to identify and then fix both warnings and suggestions with the click of a button.

Debugger improvements

Search within a Watch window, and format Watch values

You’ve probably been there before, looking in the Watch window for a string amongst a set of values. In Visual Studio 2019 Preview, we’ve added search in the Watch, Locals, and Autos windows to help you find the objects and values you’re looking for.

You can also format how a value is displayed within the Watch, Locals, and Autos windows. Double-click one of the items in any of the windows and add a comma (“,”) to access the drop-down list of possible format specifiers, each of which includes a description of its intended effect.

Visual Studio Live Share

Visual Studio Live Share is a developer service that allows you to share a codebase and its context with a teammate and get instant bi-directional collaboration directly from within Visual Studio. With Live Share, a teammate can read, navigate, edit, and debug a project that you’ve shared with them, and do so seamlessly and securely.

And with Visual Studio 2019 Preview, this service is installed by default.

Modern development support

Manage pull requests (PRs) from the IDE

We’re introducing a new extension that you can download to use with Visual Studio 2019 Preview. With this new extension, you can review, run, and even debug pull requests from your team without leaving the Visual Studio IDE (integrated development environment). We support code in Azure Repos today, but are expanding to support GitHub and improve the overall experience.

To get started now, download the Pull Requests for Visual Studio extension from the Visual Studio Marketplace.

Develop with .NET Core 3 Preview

The preview release of Visual Studio 2019 supports building .NET Core 3 applications for any platform. We’ll continue to support and improve cross-platform C++ development, as well as .NET mobile development for iOS and Android with Xamarin.

Continuous innovation

Per-monitor aware (PMA) rendering

If you use monitors that are configured with different display scale factors, or connect remotely to a machine with display scale factors that are different from your main device, you might notice that Visual Studio looks blurry or renders at the wrong scale.

With the release of Visual Studio 2019 Preview, we are taking the first steps towards making Visual Studio a per-monitor aware (PMA) application. We’re laying the foundational work that will allow Visual Studio to render correctly regardless of what display scale factors you use.
