In Whidbey, we have a feature called How Do I.  I’ve explained it on this other post.  And there are some channel 9 videos of Scott, the original Program Manager of the feature, explaining How Do I.

It’s extremely easy to create your own.

Step 1
Create an xml file with the following content.  Italized items are for you to customize.

<VSHelp xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/VisualStudio/2004/08/Help/VSHelp">
<Title _locID="VSTipsAndTricks">VS Tips and Tricks</Title>
  <Location>
    <Url>http://blogs.msdn.com/saraford/archive/category/9843.aspx</Url>
  </Location>
</VSHelp>

Step 2
Save the xml file to
<My Documents>\Visual Studio 2005\VS Help Data\8.0\Pages
(note: you may have to create the VS Help Data directory structure).

Happy Visual Studio’ing!
