Running Visual Studio Web Form Pages By Dragging Them Out of Visual Studio

Posted by Peter Kellner on September 08, 2013 · 1 min read

I just accidentally discovered that you can run a web page from visual studio by simply dragging the page out of the solution explorer and into a browser.  Who would have known?  I only discovered this because I did that action and thought it would drag the page onto my second monitor so I can edit it.  Another tip which I did know is that you can grab the folder tab of a source page in Visual Studio and drag it to your desktop (second monitor for example) and edit it while stilling seeing the original page.
