How to: Disable and Re-enable Visual Studio Tools and Extensions

Visual Studio 2010

Extension Manager lets you disable installed extensions and then re-enable them when you want to use them again. This feature is specific to extensions in the VSIX format; MSI-based extensions cannot be disabled or enabled.

  2. In Extension Manager, in the left pane, click Installed Extensions.

  3. In the middle pane, select the extension you want to disable.

    You can filter the list by using the menus in the left pane.

  4. Click Disable to disable the extension.

    You must restart Visual Studio for the change to take effect.

To enable an extension

  2. In the middle pane, select the extension you want to enable.

  3. Click Enable to enable the extension.

    You must restart Visual Studio for the change to take effect.
