Using the tf command line interface to undo another users checkout can be a real drag. So today I installed TFS Power Tools for the first time. Makes the job of an admin nice and simple. Why these features aren’t in the standard TFS Visual Studio plugin I don’t know, they should be.
- Now open the Visual Studio TFS source control explorer
- Right click on the item to undo, or the folder/s above and click the “Find in Source Control” menu item.
- Then click “Status”
- Click Find and a list of checkouts will be shown
- Select the items to undo from the list, right mouse then select undo
Job done! Lots quicker than using the command line interface.
