Highlight Current Line in Visual Studio 2010
I recently ran into a minor problem with my Visual Studio theme - the current line was highlighted and because of that I had quite a hard time reading the code and comments on the specific line.
Since I've been dealing with Visual Studio themes a bit lately, I knew how to change the theme colours, via Tools -> Options -> Environment -> Fonts and Colors. However - there are quite a lot alternatives to go through and it isn't always easy to find which alternative corresponds to what Visual Studio theme setting.
Then I found how you could change the appearance of the current line. This is how:
- Find the Current Line (extension) and Current Line Inactive (extension) rows.
- Change foreground and background.
This is how it could look:
Now, most of the Visual Studio users might not have those rows under Fonts and Colors. This is because the Productivity Power Tools must be installed.
The Productivity Power Tools will not only give you more control over Visual Studio's current line, but much more. If you're a serious Visual Studio developer, install the tools!
(Thanks to Patrik Totero for providing me with the Visual Studio theme)
