Click Online on the left, then Visual Studio Gallery to view available tools and Visual Studio extensions. Select Sample Gallery to view downloadable samples.

Use the Search box in the upper right to filter and the Sort by to sort the results.

Use this feature any time you are looking for additional tools, such as a spell checker or refactoring library. Or looking for new templates such as Entity Framework (EF) or MVC templates.

Enjoy!
