Switch off auto formatting in Visual Studio 2019

If you have landed here searching how to switch off auto formatting of code files in Visual Studio, you are either a code purist who does not like the formatting the IDE is performing or you are like me editing a large auto-generated class file (due to unfortunate situations) and Visual studio hangs or crashes on you every time you do a small change. The good news is there is an option in the IDE to switch feature off.
