Last week I was talking some folks at TechEd and it seemed customized settings of Visual Studio came up in a few conversations. As a frequent speaker I am starting to learn some of the tricks of the trade to make Visual Studio perform during a presentation. This morning Sara Ford posted the recommended Visual Studio settings the TechEd organizers suggested to speakers.
One of the reasons I think many younger speakers do not think about changing their settings is because many are not aware of how easy it is to manage various settings. Visual Studio has an Import and Export Settings option on the Tools menu. This will invoke a dialog where you can choose to either export the current settings you are using in Visual Studio, or import a previously exported configuration. So a speaker can quickly change between presentation mode and actual productivity mode.
