Automatically open project when click on Visual Studio?

Jump to solution

 I just upgraded from very old Visual Studio and Visual COBOL to Visual Studio 2017 and Visual COBOL 3.0

In my old setup, when I clicked my icon, Visual Studio automatically opened my project.

In my new setup, Visual Studio opens but requires me to click to open my project.   

Any way that my single click on the icon can both bring up Visual Studio AND my Visual COBOL project?

This is a setting that you can change under Tools-->Options-->Environment-->Startup
Change to Load Last Loaded Solution.

One possible way of getting the behaviour you want is to do the following :

In Explorer, find your solution file.
Right-click on the solution file and select Create shortcut.
Drag and drop the shortcut onto your desktop.
When you click on the shortcut icon it should start Visual Studio and open your solution.

Hope that helps.
