Having frequently used IDE menus in vicinity definitely makes my life easier. I hope it makes yours as well. Because Pending Changes is buried in the Team Explorer View, having it front and center saves me one extra click. Same applies for example to Source Control Explorer.
- Tools –> Customise
- Select Commands Tab.
- Select Toolbar radio button. E.g. Choose ‘Standard‘ or ‘Source Control‘ but can be any toolbar.
- Click Add Command…
- Categories –> Views, and scroll down and select TFSPendingChanges.
