Visual Studio Source Control Locks When a Folder with an Extrememly Large Number of Files is Selected

If you select a folder in the Source Control Explorer​ that has an extremely large number of files, the Source Control Explorer may take a long time to load, effectively locking up.  If you close Visual Studio and re-open, source control will attempt to open at the same location and the same thing happens. Rebooting will not solve this problem.  Here's the solution:

  1. Open the Task Manager and end the Devenv process to close Visual Studio
  2. Bring up the VS command prompt from the start menu and run Devenv /ResetSettings. Do NOT open the SC explorer yet
  3. Go to Tools, Options and select Source Control
  4. Select Visual Studio Team Foundation Server
  5. Uncheck the "Open Source Control Explorer to the most recent folder" checkbox.
  6. Close VS and reopen.
