How do I get NuGet to re-install/update all the packages in the packages.config?

Reinstall all packages in project:
Update-Package -reinstall -Project YourProjectName
Reinstall package “Antlr” in project:
Update-Package -reinstall Antlr -Project YourProjectName

See more here:

The following command will update all packages in every project to the latest version available from nuget.org.
Update-Package
You can also restrict this down to one project.
Update-Package -Project YourProjectName
If you want to reinstall the packages to the same versions as were previously installed then you can use the -reinstall argument with Update-Package command.
Update-Package -reinstall
You can also restrict this down to one project.
Update-Package -reinstall -Project YourProjectName
The -reinstall option will first uninstall and then install the package back again into a project.
Or, you can update the packages using the Manage Packages dialog.

Remove git mapping in Visual Studio 2015 – Stack Overflow

You simply need to remove three files from the project Path. navigate to Your Project Folder then permanently delete (“SHIFT + DEL”)

the files to permanently delete are: (‘File’ .gitignore ,’File’ .gitattributes , and ‘folder’.git)

(may be hidden so ensure you have your folders and search options > View > show hidden files, folder, and drives(Radio Button) Selected)…reopen VS and their is no more relationship to the Git Source Control. if you wanted to take it as far as removing it from the registry as mentioned above you could but shouldn’t be necessary aside from the “house keeping” of your machine. hope this helps.

C# Interactive Window · Wiki doc

The C# Interactive Window provides a fast and iterative way to learn APIs, experiment with code snippets, and test methods by giving immediate feedback on what an expression will return or what an API call does.

The C# Interactive Window is a read-eval-print-loop (REPL) with advanced editor support. It supports features like IntelliSense as well as the ability to redefine functions & classes. After entering a code snippet–which can contain class and function definitions at top-level along with statements–the code executes directly. This means you no longer need to open a project, define a namespace, define a Main method, add a Console.WriteLine() call to output your result, and add a Console.ReadLine() call in order to play with code. In other words, say goodbye to ConsoleApp137 or whatever ridiculously high number your Console Apps default to today!
