Tabs Studio screenshot Tabs Studio icon Tabs Studio is a Visual Studio and SQL Server Management Studio extension that organizes document tabs and cuts software development time. Tabs Studio lets you group your document tabs intelligently, and makes all of your document tabs visible by creating multiple rows of tabs. When working on large solutions with 20 or even 30 tabs open at the same time, it can be frustrating finding documents that are already open. Tabs Studio lets you immediately switch to another tab with a single mouse click or a few keyboard shortcuts. It's easy to remove the path from a tab name, and to color-code your tabs meaningfully. Instead of displaying tabs in multiple rows, you can show them vertically in a separate tool window. Runtime Flow screenshot Runtime Flow icon Runtime Flow in real time monitors and logs function calls and function parameters in a running .NET application and shows a stack trace tree. No instrumentation or source code required for monitoring, but if you have source code (e.g. C#, VB.NET or C++) then Runtime Flow automatically uses solution settings to start logging and for any function you can go to its source code. In a large .NET application it allows developers to quickly identify classes and functions relevant to the bug. Runtime Flow supports monitoring of .NET 2.0 - 4.6 desktop, ASP.NET and Silverlight 4/5 applications. It can work as a standalone application and can be integrated in Visual Studio. Task Canvas screenshot Task Canvas icon Task Canvas lets you edit multiple methods from different classes in one window that you can position alongside the main Visual Studio 2015/2017 window. It significantly reduces tab switching and jumping from place to place within a file. Task Canvas interface is task-focused to reduce information overload and make multitasking easy. All currently open document tabs and code blocks are automatically saved in the current task context. It is most useful when you have repeatable periodic tasks or work on several tasks in parallel.

 

Visual Time Spent screenshot Visual Time Spent icon Visual Time Spent automatically tracks your time spent working on solutions, projects and documents in Visual Studio. You can generate reports to see overall time spent and what activities took most time. All your activity such as editing and browsing in Visual Studio automatically recorded to a database. The reporting tool lets you specify report period and displays summary of your activity grouped by solution/project/window and sorted by time spent. Idle time (when you don't use Visual Studio for more than 2 minutes) is automatically excluded from the report. Visual Commander screenshot Visual Commander icon Visual Commander is a freemium extension that lets you automate repetitive tasks in Visual Studio 2017/2015/2013/2012.
