The following procedures demonstrate how to manage pending changes using the Pending Changes window that includes how to undo, remove, and compare pending changes.

Required Permissions

To perform these procedures, you must have the Read permission set to Allow. For more information, see Team Foundation Server Permissions.

    The Pending Changes window is displayed.

  2. In the Pending Changes window, view the status of pending changes under the Change column. The change status can be:

    • edit

    • add

    • lock

    • delete

  3. In the Undo Pending Changes dialog box, make sure that the item you want to undo the changes for is selected and then click Undo Changes.

  3. If you are prompted with the Source Control dialog box, click Save and continue to save your changes to the disk before you continue with the compare.

    The two files are presented with their differences highlighted, or if the files are the same, a dialog box appears that shows that the files are identical.
