How do I get my Visual Studio 2012 feature video links back?

One of the projects I worked on for Visual Studio 2012 was the feature Videos that show up both in the Ultimate and Premium start pages AND and in the features themselves.

As you may have noticed the video links in the features give you the option to “Don’t show this again” at which point the the links and text disappear –forever.

If you want to re-watch these videos the easiest way is to just bring up the start page:

View > Start Page

Now if you do demos and want to show your audience what the experience looks like in the feature you you can restore the links by deleting the contents/children of the following registry key

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\11.0\UltimateStartPage\VideoState

Restarting Visual Studio 2012 you will see the Video links are now back!
