Visual Studio installs shortcuts for a few command prompts. You can get to them via Start → All Programs → Visual Studio → Visual Studio Tools → Visual Studio Command Prompt. I have two problems with them:
- Quick Edit mode is not enabled
- The screen buffer is 300 lines
I know how to change the properties on a regular command prompt (and have already done so). I've tried to change both properties on the Visual Studio Command Prompt, but it results in a non-meaningful error "Unable to modify the shortcut . Check to make sure it has not been deleted or renamed".
The command prompt is actually just a shortcut with the target
%comspec% /k ""C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\VC\vcvarsall.bat"" x86.
How do I change the properties of the Visual Studio command prompts?
