    I have Visual Studio 2012 and 2015 installed on my machine and I am using these for ASP.NET Web Forms applications. Recently, for some reason, both have become very slow to load the HTML Designer view. Any task such as switching to design or source view, saving the changes takes around 5 minutes to complete. Can someone tell what could be wrong?

    Hi kashifdotnet,

    try to check that you have enough space left on a disk after installing the VS 2012 and 2015.

    if the space is low then try to remove the unnecessary files and create some space there to improve the performance.

    also make sure that you are not accessing the same project at a same time with running VS 2012 and VS 2015 together.

    if you are using multiple applications at the same time then I suggest you to close the unnecessary applications.

    try to remove the recent projects from the visual studio.

    if performance dropped after installing the another visual studio then I suggest you to remove one visual studio from the machine and try to make a test.

    in vs 2015 , you can try to disables things mentioned below.

    1. Go to Tools -> Options -> Text Editor -> C# -> Advanced and uncheck Enable full solution analysis
    2. Go to Tools -> Options -> XAML Designer -> General and uncheck Enable XAML Designer (requires restart of Visual Studio)

    3. Go to Tools -> Options -> Text Editor -> All Languages and uncheck Enable CodeLens

    4. Go to Tools -> Options -> Debugging -> General and disable Enable Diagnostic Tools while debugging
