Studio 2015 writes french quotes «Guillemets» insted of "double quotes". How can I stop this?

What is the target language of your project? The type of quotes that are inserted is dependent on your target language and if it is French, then this would be correct.

«xxx» quotes is standard Spanish autocorrect behaviour. If you don't want to use them, simply disable "Replace straight quotes with smart quotes" under File>options>Editor AutoCorrect.
