This video looks at the other enhancement to the Start Page. These features include the Group by Date feature in the Recent section. There is also a quick look at the Open from Source Control section.
- [Narrator] The new design for the Start Page has rearranged items and made it more open and clean looking, but that's not what I want to talk about today. I want to talk about some of the new enhancements to the page, and I'll start by looking in the Recent section. Here's where you can open folders and projects and websites that you've opened in the past. You just click on the item to open it. And the thing that's new is it's now grouped by date. So I can see that I've opened one project today and a number of projects yesterday.
Over in the Open section, there's the ability to open a project and solution. That just takes you to the normal Open Project dialogue that you can get to by going to File, Open, Project. There's also the Open Website, which has been in Visual Studio for a long time. There's a new feature here called Open Folder, which I'll talk about in another video in this chapter. So that leaves just this section here, which is a nice addition, which is called Checkout From. Now I'm logged into Visual Studio, and that gives me the ability to click here and be taken to the Team Services dialogue, where I can see my projects.
Now if I select one of these projects, I get the ability to map it to a local drive and then retrieve the files. Also the same with GitHub, if I have a GitHub account, I can click here. It'll analyze my repositories on GitHub. It shows me I have two of them there. I'll select the PixelSmith one, and then I get to choose the location, and then I can click on the Clone button to clone that from GitHub, and then open the project.
