I don't like having extra imports in files. By default, Visual Studio shows them as faded and provide a quick fix to remove them:
In this case, you need to check in each file whether all imports are used. It is possible to show them in the error window:
Create a new file named
.editorconfig at the root of your project with the following content:
# IDE0002: Name can be simplified
dotnet_diagnostic.IDE0002.severity = suggestion
# IDE0005: Remove unnecessary imports
dotnet_diagnostic.IDE0005.severity = suggestion
Also, you need to configure Visual Studio to analyze the entire solution:
Note that you can change the severity of any
IDE0000 rule by editing the editorconfig file.
