#1,159 – Managing using Directives, part II

You can add missing using directives by using the Resolve command.  You can also clean up the current list of using directives in a file, removing the ones that are no longer needed.

You can remove unneeded using directives by clicking anywhere within a file and selecting Organize Usings | Remove Unused Usings.

In the example below, we start out with 20 using directives at the top of the file.

1159-001

We then select Remove Unused Usings.

1159-002

After we execute this command, we’re left with only four using directives at the top of the file.

    Ha! Never noticed this in the context menu. I’ve been removing usings manually all this time. Thank you for the tip.
