how do I view all of my pending changes in VSTS Source Control Explorer?
I'm relatively new to TFS and perhaps because I'm a novice, I'm not too thrilled with its behaviour.
I copy a source tree from the TFS server to my local hard drive.
I open a solution from my local hard drive by browsing to the .sln file.
From the vs Solution Explorer I double-click a .cs file.
Even though I'm just looking at it, that file is often marked as checked out to me. This happens for example if I accidentally insert a blank line, even if I undo the accidental insert and even though the vs tabs imply that the .cs file is locked.
Even though I've changed nothing, Source Control Explorer acts as if there are pending changes.
I am able to right-click the file and "Undo Pending Changes...".
QUESTION: how can I get a list or report from TFS that shows ALL of the files tagged with my Windows user id?
You just right click the folder in Source Control Explorer or the solution tree...whichever you want to see under, and view pending changes.
Alternatively, if you're against a single TFS server, go to View -> Other Windows -> Pending Changes
Also, Attrice TFS Sidekicks has some handy tools for this you might want to check out.
