Reviewing changes in change sets

You can use the Change Summary view to review changes to files and folders and view information about individual change sets that modified a file or folder. You can also use the Change Explorer view to compare change sets in different workspaces, streams, snapshots, or baselines.

    • In the History view of a component, right-click the change set; then click Open With > Change Summary.
      Tip: You can also open the Change Summary view by opening a change set from the Links page of a work item.
    • Optional: To view information about individual change sets that modified a file or folder, in the upper right corner, click the View Menu icon; then click Show Details Pane.
