|NuGet Settings||Opens thepage of JetBrains Rider settings, where you can configure all settings related to NuGet package management.|
In the Sources tab of the NuGet window, Rider lists all NuGet configuration files discovered on your machine. You can add, remove, or edit package sources for the selected config file on the right panel, or click these files to open them in the editor.
If necessary, you can add or remove package sources manually, by editing the
packageSources section of a configuration file. For example:
<packageSources> <add key="My online package source" value="https://some.address/"/> <add key="My local package source" value="C:\NuGetPackages\"/> </packageSources>
Use the Reload button to re-scan related NuGet configuration files.
