I find using the Recording Macro great for

  1. Learning more about our object model and DTE
  2. Getting a code snippet for a larger macro I want to write
  3. Doing a single action to generate the macro code for it, and then surrounding it within a loop.  Now I can do the single action as many times as I want with one command

You can go to Tools – Macros – Record Temporary Macro (Ctrl+Shift+R).  Once you are finished recording (press stop on the Recording Macro toolbar), go to Tools – Macros – Macros IDE and open MyMacros- RecordingMacro in the Project Explorer to view the macro code.

Happy Visual Studio’ing!
