Auto save project when new files are added When this setting is active, your project will automatically be saved any time you add new files to the project.
Perform code analysis on solution after opening

When this setting is active, static code analysis will automatically be performed on an entire solution after it is opened. Since many files in the solution may have been edited outside of the Test Design Studio environment, performing code analysis will help identify any issues that may have been introduced.

Tip:   Code analysis can be an intensive task on poor-performing hardware. You may want to disable this option if you encounter performance issues after opening a solution.
