Disable the Start Page of Visual Studio

We can disable the start page of visual studio. its a one of the tricks which is used to improve the speed of visual studio.

The start page is the web page that is displayed by default when Visual Studio first starts up. By default, this
page shows a list of recent projects and includes tabs that list online resources and allow you to edit your Visual
Studio profile. The start page does not really add any functionality that you can't access somewhere else. The
reason the start page is both a security threat and a slowdown factor is that it launches Internet Explorer. Visual
Studio .NET 2003 fixes this issue slightly by loading Internet Explorer only if you are using a customized start
page, so needless to say, using a customized start page is discouraged.

If you don't get a lot of use out of the start page, it is easily disabled in the Options menu. While the performance
gain won't be the same between Visual Studio editions, it will be enough to be worth the effort. To disable the
start page, simply go to Tools Options, then choose General under the Environment folder (General should
be selected by default). On the right of that screen, you will see a drop-down where you can specify what Visual
Studio should do on startup. I recommend choosing Show Empty Environment; this means Visual Studio will not do anything special on startup.
