Macros! Add ins!

If you’ve long lamented to loss of macros, and more recently the loss of add-ins in Visual Studio, now you can have them both back in Visual Studio 2015.  Sort of.

With the Visual Commander extension, you can record and playback macros.  If you have some fairly simple add-in code and haven’t been willing to spend the time to convert it to an extension, you can use it practically intact.

I can once again save all files, close all files, open the Start window, and collapse all nodes in the Solution Explorer with a single mouse click.  yay!
