I first found this:
which focused on a TypeScript related problem and didnt help my issue.
I have ReSharper installed, enabling the settings below solved my issue:
To toggle ReSharper syntax highlighting Open the Code Inspection | Settings page of ReSharper options. Use the Color Identifiers check box to enable or disable ReSharper syntax highlighting. Click Save to apply the modifications and let ReSharper choose where to save them, or save the modifications to a specific settings layer using the Save To drop-down list. For more information, see managing and sharing resharper settings.

The easiest way to diff two files directly in solution explorer
For me the problem was connected to ReSharper which already implements this function. Solution was to disable the VS 2017 functionality for ctrl+click. (prefer the ReSharper way with built in decompiling)
Goto options -> Text Editor -> General -> uncheck “Enable mouse click…”
Disable the default vs2017 setting.
I got this message ‘fatal: unable to access ‘\/.config/git/config’: Invalid argument’ when opening a GIT based solution in VS 2017.
Solution was to add an environment variable “HOME” with value “c:\” (c: or where your project folder resides).

I was recently on a conference and spotted this nice code font:
which makes us of “ligatures” that takes common programming characters and make them more readable.
Such as >= ++ != and presents them in a more condensed and more readable way.
To use in Visual Studio 2017, download from:
Unzip ttf folder select all fonts, right click menu and install.
Open/Restart VS2017 -> Options -> Environment -> Fonts and colors -> Select “Fira Code” as font.

Use this addon for VS 2017:
Shrinks empty line height in code editor by 25% to be able to see more lines of codes at a glance.
Great tool for attaching VS 2017 debug to IIS for instance.
It will add some menu options under the Tools menu.
After installing this addon its possible set a keyboard shortcut by searching for “tools.attach” in the VS keyboard shortcut window.
