Another co-authored tip with a tip of the day reader.  I admit i didn’t know how to do this either, but i get the advantage of asking the developer on the feature directly =)

If you have a solution with lots of projects in it, and you notice the toolbox is taking a long time scanning the solution for all possible toolbox items, you can go to Tools – Options – Windows Forms Designer – General and set AutoToolboxPopulate to false.
