emulation – How to safely remove/uninstall Android Virtual Device .img files added by Visual Studio Emulator for Android – Stack Overflow

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/02/26

Me at [WayBack] emulation – How to safely remove/uninstall Android Virtual Device .img files added by Visual Studio Emulator for Android – Stack Overflow:

Since after uninstalling the “Visual Studio Emulator for Android” component, you cannot get to the “AVD Manager” any more, you have to manually delete this directory:

%LocalAppData%\Microsoft\VisualStudioEmulator

This works for both Visual Studio 2017 and Visual Studio 2015.

In addition, you might want to run “AppWiz.cpl“, then remove “Android SDK Tools”, which is also not automatically removed by the Visual Studio installer (at least not in Visual Studio 2015).

This will get rid of the multi-gigabyte folder %ProgramFiles(x86)%\Android\android-sdk\

If you still need Android emulation, read these:

Since I really want to switch most of my SSMS usage to a tool being less resource intensive, as a truckload of my work is just running scripts, not browsing through data: [WayBackUse the Visual Studio Code mssql extension for SQL Server | Microsoft Docs

This tutorial shows how to use the mssql extension for VS Code. This extension allows you to edit and run Transact-SQL scripts in VS Code.

visual studio code – Does the “editorWhitespace.foreground” workbench.colorCustomizations setting in VSCode actually work? – Stack Overflow

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/01/16

[WayBack] visual studio code – Does the “editorWhitespace.foreground” workbench.colorCustomizations setting in VSCode actually work? – Stack Overflow

Yes, it does. But after reading [WayBack] vscode-docs/theme-color-reference.md at master · Microsoft/vscode-docs · GitHub: Editor Colors or [WayBack] Visual Studio Code Theme Color Reference you might want to put it in the config straight like this:

see the editor white spaces, enable Toggle Render Whitespace.

  • editorWhitespace.foreground: Color of whitespace characters in the editor.

However, you need to embed it like this:

"workbench.colorCustomizations": {
    "editorWhitespace.foreground": "#333",
    "editorIndentGuide.background": "#333"
  }

The embedding makes it work.
