how do I change the TFS server?

 

 

Shelve Changes

HOW DOES THIS WORK?!??
I mean, it works.
I’ve shelved, and unshelved.
Where is it stored?!?!?

 

Shelve and Unshelve pending changes (for vs2010)

 

Go to Team Explorer, then “Pending Changes”, then “Actions”, then “Find Shelvesets”, then right click on the shelve you want to unshelve, finally “Unshelve”.

 

 

Get latest version

By default (or settings?) TFS won’t over-write changed files.
So:

 

  1. Solution level >> Right-click >> Undo Pending Changes
  2. Solution level >> Get Latest Version (recursive)

 

Branching (and merging)

Misc

Q Is there a way to pull two copies of a single solution from TFS 2010 for the same user/machine?

You can have multiple copies of a single solution either by having multiple branches in TFS or by setting up different workspaces
