Make yourself comfortable and productive

It's all too easy to just start using the developer environment without really thinking about how to make it work best for yourself.


Before starting on a new development, especially with a new installation of the developer environment, spend a few minutes setting things up to suit your own style and development needs. Simple things such as having more recent items in your start menu can save time as you would not have to navigate your way to a document every time you need to open it. Here, we will explore a few of our favorite settings, all of which can save a little time here and there, making you comfortable and more productive.

It's surprising how much difference a few little adjustments to the developer environment can make to productivity, but don't forget that you want your users to be productive too!
