Improve Team Foundation System Compare/Merge function

We (.NET developer) probably agrees that the built-in compare/merge tool of TFS is not good enough.

OK I know we have better solutions to do code compare/merge  (for e.g: WinMerge, Beyond Compare…etc).
Good news: we can use these software as custom tools in TFS.


Step 1: In Visual Studio, click Tools –> Options

Step 2: Go to Source Control –> Visual Studio Team Foundation Server

Step 3: Click Configure User Tools,

Step 4: Click Add/Remove/Modify to setup your custom tools. Configure the path and arguments as you want.

Enjoy ! Happy code comparing
