TFS Tricks: Using a different diff tool

Saturday, April 7, 2007 – 4:41 PM

For those of you who haven’t fallen madly in love with the default code diff’ing tool in TFS he’s how to use WinDiff or another diff tool with TFS…

“Just go to Tools->Options->Source Control->Visual Studio Team Foundation Server and click on Configure User Tools to specify the diff tool of your choice.  Enter "*" for the Extension, the path to your diff viewer’s executable in the Command and leave the Arguments as "%1 %2" to hook it up.”  

I stole this off someone else’s blog – no credit for me – but I thought it was worth mentioning as it’s rather buried in the UI. There’s a lot more detail here too.
