I’m sure it’s awesome.
I’m sure it doesn’t impact performance (much).
I’m sure my apps would be more awesome if I used it, but …

… today I want to turn off this “helpful” window from always showing while I was debugging my code …

Visual Studio 2015 Diagnostic Tools window

So I followed these steps …

  1. Tools > Options > Debugging.
  2. Clear the “Enable diagnostic tools while debugging” option.

Disable Diagnostic Tools while debugging

Oh, and I took the opportunity to turn off IntelliTrace while I was in there too …

Disable IntelliTrace
