How to display only threads related to your application in Threads Windows

Let's say your application is creating lot of threads. You can inspect these threads in Threads windows in Visual Studio.

Problem is that there are system related threads that are not directly related to your application and it will be nice if those un-related threads could be filtered out of this window. In order to do this, you first click on the Flag icon. This will bring up a menu with one of the option Flag Just My Code as shown in figure below. 


When you click this option, in the Threads window all your application related threads will by flagged as shown below. 

Now you can simply use the Group by option and choose to do the grouping by Flag Indicator.

At this point, you can only leave Flagged Threads group as expanded and focus on the threads related to your application.

I hope you will find this tip helpful.
