Changing Startup News Feed in Visual Studio

Are you tired of the same old Microsoft news feed when you open Visual Studio (BIDS)?  Why not go ahead and update it so you every time you load VS you get news that you’re actually interested in.  I’ve changed my news feed to display all the SQL Server Central blogs so now instead of ignoring the news feed I actually read through each.  I’m sure many people have blogged about this before but I want to give credit to Scott Gleason for showing me this nice feature several months ago.

1.  Open Visual Studio (BIDS)

2.  Use the Tools Menu and select Options

3.  Under the Environment list select Startup

4.  Type in the news feed of your choice.  I used SQL Server Central blogs http://www.sqlservercentral.com/blogs/MainFeed.aspx
