The default IDE in Visual Studio is satisfactory but can be enhanced to so much more with the help of extensions. Similarly, if you don’t like some of the IDE’s default behaviors, extensions can serve as a patch that facilitates a more effective environment.
To install an extension, go to Tools > Extensions and Updates. Click “Online” search for the extension you need, and select “Download”. After installation, restart Visual Studio to make sure the download performed correctly.
Three useful extensions that are freeware, even for commercial use, are SpellChecker (https://marketplace.visualstudio.com/items?itemName=NoahRichards.SpellChecker), StopOnFirstBuildError (https://marketplace.visualstudio.com/items?itemName=EinarEgilsson.StopOnFirstBuildError), and Array Visualizer (https://marketplace.visualstudio.com/items?itemName=AmirLiberman.ArrayVisualizer).
