Apply Window Layout removed all my saved Window Layouts and reset my settings

    Question

  • When I selected Window -> Apply Window Layout, Visual Studio 2015 removed the saved Window Layouts I had and reset all (or most, at least) of my settings. After all the customization I have done to Visual Studio 2015 (as I'm sure many developers have), this is very frustrating. Yeah, I probably should have exported my settings periodically, but it still doesn't explain why my Window Layouts were deleted. Is there any way I can undo this (or at least in part)? Thanks.

  • Hi Nathan Sokalski,

    Thanks for your post.

    Could you please tell me which setting has been reset?

    I did a test in my side using VS2015 Update1.

    I changed one of the setting in VS2015 via Tools->Options.

    And when Apply windows layout, the setting of my Visual Studio is not been reset.

    If possible, please tell me which setting has been reset so that we could reproduce it in our sides.

    >>but it still doesn't explain why my Window Layouts were deleted.

    Did you mean your Windows Layouts were deleted after applying the layout?

    Please also provide detailed steps to reproduce your issue.

    BTW, if you could share us some UIs of your issue. it would also be helpful to the troubleshooting.

    Best Regards,

    Lake Xiao
