Customizing Visual Studio

There are a couple of things that you might want to do to make Visual Studio work better for you. To do this, you will change some of Visual Studio's options. On the menu bar, click on Tools and Options as shown below:

options

Expand the item named "Environment" and then click on Fonts and Colors.

You will then see a window like this:

fonts

Here you can change the font that is used in your code window.

The next thing that I recommend you do is to turn on line numbers. To do this, expand the line that reads "Text Editor", then click on "all Languages, and "General". Click on the box marked "Line Numbers" as shown below.
