What is a TARGETS file?

Files with the .target extension usually contain development files that are included with the MSBuild platform for Microsoft Visual Studio. These files contain properties, tasks, items and targets for popular programming scenarios. These common programming scenarios can be imported to Visual Studio projects by importing the .targets file to the Visual Studio project.
