Improve Source View Performance

Web Development Tools Microsoft

In case you have observed any slowness in your source view around typing or arrowing through code, here are a few tips that may help.

1. Turn off background HTML validation.  Go to Tools / Options and select Text Editor / HTML / Validation in the tree view on the left side.  Uncheck the Show Errors check box.< ?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = “urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office” />

2. Turn off AutoRecover.  Go to Tools / Options and select Environment / AutoRecover in the tree view.  Uncheck the Save AutoRecover check box.

3. Close your property grid (View / Properties Window)
