The Team Foundation Power Toys are primarily command-line tools, with each Power Toy implemented as a command in a common application (tfpt.exe). To use these commands, start tfpt.exe at the Command Prompt. Some of the Power Toys will display a graphical user interface when called. In addition, you can access the Annotate and Treediff commands from Source Control Explorer in Visual Studio or Team Explorer. Previously, the Team Foundation Power Toys were only available in the Team Foundation Server SDK. This release includes four new Power Toys: Annotate, Bind, Query, TreeDiff, and Workitem.
Available Power Toys are:
Unshelve CommandUse the unshelve command to unshelve and merge the changes in the workspace.
Rollback CommandUse the rollback command to roll back changes that have already been committed to Team Foundation Server.
Online CommandUse the online command to create pending edits on writable files that do not have pending edits.
GetCS CommandUse the GetCS (Get Changeset) command to get the changes in a particular changeset.
UU CommandUse the UU (Undo Unchanged) command to undo unchanged files, including adds, edits, and deletes.
Annotate CommandUse the annotate command to download all versions of the specified files and show information about when and who changed each line in the file.
Review CommandUse the review command to optimize the code review process to avoid checking in or shelving.
History CommandUse the history command to display the revision history for one or more files and folders. The /followbranches option returns the history of the file branch’s ancestors.

Query CommandUse the query command to run a work item query and display the results. If you do not provide a specific query, all the active work items assigned to you are displayed.
