Todo tasks not appearing in the Task List in visual studio

I've recently upgraded to Visual Studio 2012 and haven't have any problems except for the fact that comments beginning with "//todo" no longer show up in the task list. 

To resolve this problem, do the following:

For Visual Studio 2012 / 2015

visual studio 2012

  1. Select View -> Other Windows -> Task List.
  1. Select the option "Comments" in the Task List window.


google_ad_client = "ca-pub-2529029336357825"; google_ad_slot = "7419598997"; google_ad_width = 728; google_ad_height = 90; //--> --

'; //now outputting this to HTML echo $googleadsensecode; ?>

For Visual Studio 2008.

In the Task List window select the option "Comments".

attach some definitions to understand more the subject:

Visual Studio 2015

Use the Task List to track code comments that use tokens such as TODO and HACK, or custom tokens, and to manage shortcuts that will take you directly to a predefined location in the code. Click on the item in the list to go to its location in the source code.


User Task

The user task feature has been removed in Visual Studio 2015. When you open a solution which has user task data from Visual Studio 2013 and earlier in Visual Studio 2015, the user task data in your .suo file will not be affected, but the user tasks will not be displayed in the task list.
If you wish to continue to access and update your user task data, you should open the project in Visual Studio 2013 and copy the content of any user tasks into your preferred project management tool (such as Team Foundation Server).

I hope it will be useful for you.
