Visual-studio – How to exclude files from Visual Studio compile


I'm in the process of refactoring a project. I've got an entire subfolder which is known to be broken. Is there any declarative way to exclude that folder from the compile temporarily while I test the refactoring thus far?

I realize I could delete the folder, but I'd like to do this through configuration if possible.

Best Solution

You could set the Build Action (in the Properties Window) to None for the files you want excluded. You could also right-click on the folder and choose Exclude from Project.
