Add, Remove, Reorder, and Sort Columns (Team Explorer Everywhere)

Visual Studio 2010

You can find specific work items and related information more easily by adding columns to the results list for a particular query. You can then highlight the most useful data if you sort the list by one or more columns. The default display columns are ID, Work Item Type, Title, Assigned To, and State. These columns appear in the query results for all types of work items.

For information about how to navigate within the query editor or query view using keyboard shortcuts, see Keyboard Shortcuts for the Query Editor and Query Results View (TEE).

Required Permissions

To perform these procedures, you must be a member of the Readers group, or your View work items in this node permission must be set to Allow. For more information, see the following topic on the Microsoft Web site: Team Foundation Server Permissions.
