Visual Studio Extensions are a great way to enhance Visual Studio to perform useful, frequently executed tasks thereby saving time, reducing the risk of human error and contributing to a more efficient and enjoyable software development experience. Extensions are quite simple to create, publish and distribute to other members of your team.
