comment How to keep the original quick launch menu of a page even after replacing the page layout by another one?
SharePoint Designer is not required, but a master page with the correct placeholders is. Often, master page development is started in SharePoint Designer, but you could do it all in Visual Studio if you preferred. You might want to start with copying the text of default.master from the SharePoint Root.

Thanks for the link to your great article, @Mark jones. In summary, would you say that everything you need to do for SharePoint 2013 Development is available in VS2010 then?

@FalakMahmood thanks for the update. Just so you know, I'm not trying to actively troubleshoot an issue. Like your recommendation, I prefer maintaining configuration in other places. Issues I've encountered with SPWebConfigModification in the past (too long to remember the details) are part of that reasoning.

Falak, I've experienced issues related to removing changes through SPWebConfigModification like some explained here blogs.devhorizon.com/reza/2008/01/05/… Have you ever seen issues like Reza describes? And how do you deal with them? Thanks,Tom

I agree with Kit. If you update your question with a summary of the content relevant to Visual Studio 2010 I would give an up vote.

_layouts is a good destination for files deployed by your solution package.

comment Can I put my master page in the 14 hive?
I don't think it's safe to count on only some files being updated. The general rule of thumb is that files not deployed with solution packages are subject to removal or change by updates to the product. It's best to consider the SharePoint Root off limits to manual changes.
