How to: Remove a File Type Associated with Team Foundation Version Control

File type definitions let you customize the way the version control system handles files that have specific extensions. By defining a file type, you control whether files that have a particular extension can have internal keywords expanded during a check-in, and whether multiple users can modify a specific file in parallel. For information about adding file type associations to version control, see How to: Add File Type Association with Team Foundation Version Control. The following procedure demonstrates how to remove a file type extension associated with version control.

Required Permissions

To remove a file type association, you must have the Edit server-level information permission set to Allow. For more information, see Team Foundation Server Permissions.

To remove a file type associated with version control

  1. On the Team menu, click Team Foundation Server Settings, and then click Source Control File Types.

    The File Types dialog box appears. It displays a list of the file name extensions that are currently associated with version control.

  2. Highlight the file type extension you want to remove and then click Remove.

    The entry is erased and no longer appears in the File Types dialog box.

  3. Click OK.
