Start Page news channel is not customizable in VS2013 isolated shell RRS feed

  • Question

  • In VS2012, it was possible to supply a URL for the news channel from the "Tools / Options / Environment / Startup" property page. It was associated with registry key $RootKey$\StartPage\NewsChannel

    In VS2013, the field in the property page and the registry key are gone. In our isolated shell, we want to reuse the default start page but just customize the news feed url. Where is the url now and can it be customized?
