Visual Studio 2017 options that could be default

Visual Studio is set up good initially. There a are a few necessary edits below that I think most people will want:

* environment
  * documents
    * uncheck  allow editing of read-only files
    *   check  save documents in Unicode when data can not be saved in codepage (i.e. I think this means it has Unicode characters)
  * tabs and windows
    *   check  insert new tabs to the right of existing tabs
    * uncheck  show pin button                                                              # right-click has option
* text editor
  * general-display
    * uncheck  selection margin                                                             # i like the extra space
    * uncheck  indicator margin
  * all languages-general-settings
    *   check  word wrap
    * uncheck  show visual glyphs for word wrap
    * uncheck  line numbers                                                                     # status bar provides
  * all languages-scroll bars
    * uncheck  show horizontal scroll bar                                           # word wrap makes this extraneous
  * all languages-tabs
    *   block  indenting
    *       2  tab and indent size                                                      # define it enough to be visible
    *   check  keep tabs                                                                            # documents received can be created w/ tabs
