Initialize Interactive with Project

I don't have the menu option 'Initialize Interactive with Project' as shown in the video at 0:20. I'm using Visual Studio 2017 Community. Is there some way to activate this feature?

Did you right click the project name (in my case it titled SoccerStats) and click Initialize Interactive with Project (a little more than half way down the dialog box). Note, I am also using Visual Studio 2017.

Yeah, I'm not seeing that menu option for some reason. Screenshot:

You are also missing Source Control and Code Formatter. Did you try to make another project and see if it shows up. Maybe when you were installing Visual Studio initially the Initialize Interactive with Project featured was not included (though that seems unlikely). I also checked StackOverflow as well to no avail.

Hey you're right, if I open a different project I do get the option to Initialize Interactive with Project. Wonder what I did on this one!

Glad you found it. I think Visual Studio 2017 (and the preview of Visual Studio 2019) has some quirks.

I have a hard time creating GitHub repositories through Visual Studio. I rather use PowerShell (or iTerm for Mac), but in Visual Studio you can revert to an old version of your project if your code breaks.
