Visual Studio defaults to Git Source Control on opening TFS Solution

Martin Janik 0 Reputation points

I have multiple solutions stored both in TFS and Git. When I launch the VS as an Administrator, "Start Window" is shown. Then, I select a TFS solution. The VS opens, loads all projects under the TFS solution and when loaded, it automatically starts unloading all projects and loads Git solution. After this, I have to open "Start Window" from VS and select the TFS project again. After VS unloads the Git solution and loads TFS solution everything works just fine.

    Hi @Martin Janik, 

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A! 

    Which version of Visual Studio are you using? 

    Please ensure you are connected to TFS in VS.

    Then, open the VS and go to Tools > Option > Source Control > Plug-in Selection > Current source control plug-in: Visual Studio Team Foundation Server.

    Besides, please check if there is a .git folder in the source directory. If it exists (it may be hidden), please backup and delete it.
