Customizing the folders and file extensions automatically excluded

August 4th, 2009 · No Comments · Team Foundation Server, Team Foundation Version Control, TFS Installation and Configuration, TFS Tips and Tricks, VSTS

When adding items to source control a list of excluded folders as well as file extensions is shown. You can customize those defaults in the registry.


Matthew Mitrik has the details:

If the add operation is successfully completed, the list will be saved to the registry.

Order of finding masks to filter:

  1. HKCU\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\[Version]\TeamFoundation\SourceControl\AddOptions\ExcludeMasks
  2. HKLM\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\[Version]\TeamFoundation\SourceControl\AddOptions\ExcludeMasks

(Thanks to Rich and Matt)
