[#VS2013] HowTo: Exclude from a checkin action all files with a specific extension



There are moments where the simplest thing can be very complicated (or tedious, or consume you long time, etc…)

An example of this is when you work with Visual Studio 2010 to try exclude all files with a particular extension from a CheckIn action (this was a little hell). Now with the latest improvements to the Team Explorer, this now is an “almost natural process”. For example, think in a large checkin and in this checkin I don’t want to include the .sln files. To do this we can follow the following steps

1. In Team Explorer, select the PENDING CHANGES section.

2. In the section Included Changes, deployment options and select Show Filter.


3. In the filter, put [.sln] and already have all the files, .sln files package to protect. (piece of censorship I have made on the image)


4 Then the option to Exclude All does not include these files changes to protect.

5. Ready! Open-mouthed smile
