Open XAML file in XAML view by default in VS 2010

When working with XAML in Visual Studio 2010 I prefer to see XAML as text rather than in the design or split views. To set this as a default in Visual Studio 2010:

  1. Open Visual Studio 2010.
  2. Go to Tools > Options > Text Editor > XAML > Miscellaneous.
  3. Check “Always open documents in full XAML view”.
  4. Click OK.
  5. Job done.
