Edit Project Files Directly in Visual Studio

This tip applies to VS project files for .NET languages such as C#, VB.NET, and Managed C++.

Follow these steps to edit a project file:

  1. In the context Menu of the Solution Explorer, select the "Unload Project" option. This will unload the project so you can edit the project file.
  2. Right-click on the project you just unloaded, and select the "Edit Project" option.
  3. Make any required changes, and then save.
  4. When you want to reload the project, simply right click on the unloaded project, and select "Reload Project."
