Lately I’ve been speaking at local user groups about many of the exciting new features in Visual Studio 2012. Since there is so much to know and learn about VS 2012, I decided to create a collection of blog posts with many of the tips. This collection of posts will include features that are new to VS 2012 as well as some existing features as well. To view all of the VS 2012 tips posted so far, click here.

I love the little things that were added to VS 2012. The Image Preview is one of them. It’s one of those things that makes you wonder “That seems so simple, why wasn’t it there before.” But I’m not judging, I’m just glad it is here now. The feature is simple. When looking at a list of images that are included in your solution (in Solution Explorer, of course), just hover an image to get a preview of it. This can be a big time saver when you have a big set of icons that all have similar names.


I hope you find this tip helpful. To see more VS 2012 Tips, just click here.
