Tuesday’s tip discussed how to reset your settings, but maybe you don’t remember what you picked during the first launch of VS, or if you’ve done a reset since then.


Under the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\9.0\Profile key, you’ll see the “LastResetSettingsFile” value.  As I mentioned in Tuesday’s tip, the codename for this feature was called Profiles, hence the word profile as the key.

Last Reset Settings File indicates what you last reset to.

If you didn’t reset any settings since launching VS, this value tells you this is what you picked at first launch.
