How to: Edit Project Property Sheets 

The easiest way to edit project Property Sheets (C++) is by modifying project settings in property pages for property sheets.

To edit a project property sheet

  1. Open your solution in the Visual Studio IDE.

  2. From the View menu, select the Property Manger menu item. The Property Manager window will appear, docked on the left of the IDE.

  3. In Property Manager, double-click a property sheet. The property pages for the property sheet will appear.

  4. Enter or set new property values in the fields that you want to modify.


    Aggregate properties are separated with a semicolon. For more information, see Property Inheritance.

  5. Click the Apply button.


    When you click Apply, the new settings will automatically propagate to all project files and property sheets that inherit from the property sheet that you modified.

  6. Click the OK button.
