VS 2017 always choosing the wrong xml schema

I have another IntelliSense issue with VS 2017 - each time I open a .axml file, IntelliSense isn't working.
The actual issue is that VS is looking for xml schemas in the project folder/bin/Debug.

I have to manually change the xml schemas to the ones in the correct location:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\Enterprise\Xml\Schemas\android-layout-xml.xsd
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\Enterprise\Xml\Schemas\

Is there a way to make VS 2017 use the correct schemas for .axml files by default?

    I have the exact same issue. I even tried copying the schema's into the obj\Debug\Schemas folder but it doesn't work.

    A default schema for all .axml files would work, but it doesn't exist.
