Environment Options Dialog Box
You can use the pages in the Environment folder in the Options dialog box to set how certain elements of the integrated development environment (IDE) display and behave. You can access the Environment pages by, on the menu bar, choosing Tools, Options, and then selecting Environment.
The dialog boxes and menu commands that appear on your computer might differ from those that are described in Help, depending on your active settings and the edition of Visual Studio that you are using. To change your settings, choose Import and Export Settings on the Tools menu. For more information, see Customizing Development Settings in Visual Studio.
