Visual Studio product feedback

Talk to us! We're interested in your ideas for improving our products and documentation. We can't always respond personally, but we'll make sure that your feedback gets to the right person or team.

I want to report a problem with Visual Studio

If you experience problems with Visual Studio—such as crashes, sluggish performance, or unexpected behavior—let us know by using the Report a Problem tool. In Visual Studio, choose the feedback icon next to Quick Launch, or choose Help > Send Feedback > Report a Problem from the menu bar. Next, Visual Studio opens the Developer Community page in your browser, where you can sign in to report the problem. For more information, see How to report a problem with Visual Studio.

I want to make a suggestion about Visual Studio features

If there's something we can do better, tell us about it! In Visual Studio, choose Help > Send Feedback > Provide a Suggestion from the menu bar. Next, Visual Studio opens the Developer Community page in your browser, where you can sign in to share your idea. For more information, see Suggest a feature for Visual Studio 2017.
