Resetting your Default Language Settings in VS 2005

After you have installed Visual Studio 2005 you are prompted to ‘choose’ the default collection of settings for your environment.  Depending one what choice you chose will dictate your keyboard mappings, your menu options, etc.

What do you do if you don’t like your selection after the initial install or if you want to change them?  You can change them, but it is not intuitive.

Here are the steps to change your settings:

  1. Choose Tools -> Import and Export Settings...
  2. Select Reset All Settings and click Next
  3. Select whether you would like to save the current settings (I would say not here) and click Next
  4. Select the settings you want to use and click Finish

There you have it, the steps to reset/change your default language settings…

Thanks for that!  I've just started a new role and inherited a desktop with a very unfamiliar setup in Visual Studio but I had no idea how I could change it.  I feel much better now.

@Kareena,

I was in the same situation yesterday, which is why i created the post.  I have no idea what setup the person prior to me had, but it was NOT the one i like or use.

Glad i could help
