Very useful for us beginners.

Awesome, streamlined tool that makes it super easy to download sample projects. No more zip files! Yes!

Like it a lot. Only question - why did you add controls to standard toolbar instead of creating a separate one?
I don't need it all the time, and there is no way to remove it.

Gets the job done! I installed it. Looked up the appbar XAML C# sample for WinRT. Copied. Pasted. Runs. Never left the IDE.

This is definitely a "must-have" for every developers in Visual Studio!! It gives me really easy access to thousands of code samples. The Sample Browser also saves me a lot of time to save my downloaded projects.

Cool tools

by Graham P Cottle | September 11 2012

Am I really going to have to update the extension on a daily basis? That seems to be a horrid waste of time.

by Cloves Z | September 04 2012

So cool, It's a very useful tool. I like it.

  • Sample Browser Visual Studio Extension on VS 2013 soon ?
    3 Posts | Last post June 05, 2014
    • Any idea of when this wonderful extension will be available on Visual Studio 2013 ?
      
      Thanks
      
    • We are working to upgrade the Sample Browser to VS2013 with new features, but if you could send your feedback about Sample Browser to onecode@microsoft.com, it will encourage and inspire us to work it out faster :)
    • I don't need any "fucking new features", I just want the existing extension to work in VS2013, that's all.
      Hurry up, MS already released a CTP of VS2015!!!
       
  • Sample web browser extension problem
    1 Posts | Last post January 28, 2014
    • I installed a sample web browser extension for VS 2012. It is working fine when I used it through toolbar. But when I type some code and want to find sample code in code editor i.e visual studio IDE about that then I right click on it and there is no option for " search code sample " in IDE. What should I do? Is there any problem?
  • VS 2013 ?

    • Still waiting...
      
    • It is unclear what you are waiting for.  Love the FoxPro icon!
    • Did you see my subject?
      I am waiting for the VS 2013 version!

    • "Sample Browser Visual Studio Extension allows developers to search and download 4500+ code samples from within Visual Studio 2012 and Visual Studio 2010"
      
      Does this mean it won't work in VS 2013?

  • How do you remove the Search bar from the 'Standard' Toolbar in VS2012?
    4 Posts | Last post March 14, 2013
    • The 'Search Code Samples' bar takes up a lot of space that I'd like to reclaim.  As this is added to the 'Standard' toolbar, I cannot find a means to remove it.  Just being able to look for samples using the FILE menu application is good enough for me.  So... How can I remove this toolbar add-on?
    • Go to Tools/Customize... select Commands tab, then select Toolbar and choose Standard from drop-down menu. You can now delete Search Code Samples from the Controls pane.
    • I've deleted them from the Standard Toolbar.
      How do I add them to Main Menu bar, next the Help menu?
    • I am in the same boat as Kobus - I want to be able to move the extension commands from the main toolbar to one of their own. I know you can delete them from the Standard Toolbar, but I cannot seem to find them in the list of commands to add to a toolbar through Customize. Am I missing something?
  • When will logging in be supported?
    1 Posts | Last post March 11, 2013
    • I would like to be able to login so that the items I have marked as favorites online would be available on whatever machine I am running the All-In-One Samples Browser.  Thanks!!!
  • Digital Signature mismatch

    • While updating, a message box appears with an "Update version has an invalid signature" message.
    • Hello Anton
      Could you please let me know the version number of Sample Browser VS Extension installed in your environment?  You can find the version number in Visual Studio / Extension Manager / Installed Extension / Select Sample Browser Visual Studio Extension. 
    • Hi Jialiang,
      
      I don't remember it. I solved this problem with removing the Sample Browser version and installing it again from scratch.
      
      Now it's 5.815 and so I think if you take some earlier version you can reproduce the problem.
