Let’s say you create a new class file called Class1. If you try to rename Class1 in the Solution Explorer, Visual Studio prompts you to decide whether you want to rename all references to this code element in your project.


But she’s more of an IDE tips know-it-all, so the real “Did you know” here is this: Did you know you can disable this prompt and just have Visual Studio automatically do the rename for you?

Go to Tools–Options–Projects And Solutions–General and uncheck the Prompt For Symbolic Renaming When Renaming Files option.


Happy Programming! =)
