Visual Studio 2010 Start up Gets Faster

Time is money in Software business, Many times it happens that we need to do a very important work and Visual studio doesnot load up which hampers our performance. Now there is a good tool which makes Visual Studio 2012 Startup Faster, Just disable TFS autoconnect feature and Save a lot of time.

If you have experienced that opening Visual Studio 2012 takes too much time as it tries to connect to TFS automatically, you can now disable TFS auto connect and once visual studio is up then connect it to TFS which take very less time.

For achieving this You can install the TFS power tools, you can download it here

-Please close all the Visual Studio and TFS instances before you start installation.
-After installation open up a visual studio command prompt and run the command "tfpt connections" this will bring up a dialogue which will show all of your available TFS servers and Collections.
-There are 2 options you can try, firstly uncheck "Automatically connect to server on start up" this should stop VS trying to connect to TFS when you open a solution.
-If that doesn't work then click on the "+" next to the TFS server and select the collection you are using for source control. Hit the "Edit" button and you should see a check box called "Server is Offline" select this and you will no longer be connected to TFS.
-To reverse the behavior use the same tool to toggle the values back to their defaults.
