Visual Studio 2017 Start-up
Before you can jump into features, you need to install and start Visual Studio 2017. With the new version, Microsoft has again reworked the starting setup screen to try to make it easier and better for you to get started or to load projects. You’ll be able to select the various options you want quickly and easily. The setup becomes a lot more streamlined than some of the past versions.
The overall intent is to get you into your projects faster than before. Once you have set up Visual Studio 2017, you should find that the start time of apps is faster. Microsoft stated that they can be up to three times faster than with Visual Studio 2015. Once started, they’ve also included starting points for even more of the most common scenarios that developers tend to use.
Of course, the one thing I quickly noticed when installing Visual Studio 2017 Community Edition is that if you install all of the options for developing applications, you’ll quickly pass 50 GB of needed disk space!
