I wonder what moron at MS decided this was a good idea
This might be a trigger for some, but MS seems to put the lesser lights in charge (probably to reduce labor costs) of projects, which eliminates to wiser, more experienced minds that used to manage products and projects and lead software development.
My lead example of this is that 30 years ago, we had a WinForms designer in the VB IDE that worked beautifully. And so it did going forward through the advent of .NET and Visual Studio. Yet today's "brain trust" at MS says it is too hard to make a XAML designer work as well as the WinForms designer that was once written in assembler!
Maybe MS needs to hire adults and not wannabes to lead their product development and software development.
You mean like all the requests to bring back color coded source printing to match the color coding on the screen. Color coded source printing disappeared in VS 2012. I still want my source code color coded on the rare occasions I actually print it out.
I love the right click context menu on the vs icon if you add it to your toolbar shortcuts. It lists all my latest opened projects so its two clicks ( right , then left selection ) and I'm right where I want to be from OS to code.

I open one instance of VS in the morning, and just switch out the solution I'm working on. I sometimes need 2 instances, but that is a once every 3 months kind of thing. Not having a list of recent projects inside VS to pick from will be a pain in my a$$. VS 2017 already makes it harder for me because I have to manually close the current solution before opening another. Prior versions I could just open a new solution and the old one auto-closed.
