TFS keeps file checked out after successful check in

Some people might experience that on checking in a file into TFS, the file is actually checked into source control but the “checked out” icon appears in visual studio.

This is because of a visual studio settings, to change this follow these instructions.

1. Open visual studio

2. Navigate to Tools - Options and under the “Source Control” - "Environment" - untick the check box that says "Keep items checked out when checking in"
That's it!
