He notes that there have been almost 250,000 downloads of this, and after seeing it you will understand why.

      Do I need an account to view the video Visual Studio Toolbox: Power Commands for Visual Studio? I get a blank view screen with the run time listed as 00:00:00. This is also happening with other videos. I got to the video through the MS online help.

      @Beatrice:No, that definitely is not required. Have you tried downloading any of the files listed to the right of the video player?

      Thanks for the vid.  Question. Could they add a "Remove unused references" to References node? Remove any ref that is not called in the project from the list.

      All those commands are things I *rarely* do. The best add-ins make tasks I do constantly better. That's where DPack (http://visualstudiogallery.msdn.microsoft.com/c7befd80-446f-4005-b659-0e8de2ee1417) shines. A keystroke to invoke a dialog that searches through all files in the solution (turn on the option to show all files) filtering down to the one I want - hitting enter opens the file. Another function to do the same thing for all methods in the current file. Both allow navigating through files and methods (something all developers do *constantly*) much more efficient.
      I first started using it as a Delphi developer (that's where the 'D' comes from I think) 11 years ago and have used it daily ever since.

      Will the email-ing code snippets work with t-bird, instead of outlook?
