If you’re working on solution that has many projects and many project items and you tend to get lost between your files... You might want to go to Tools –> Options –> Projects and Solutions and set Track Active Item in Solution Explorer on. For me it was a big relief that I found it. I’m working on project that has quite many projects under the solution and I have found myself constantly “searching” for files that are at the same location as the currently open file. And this is the painkiller for that pain:
I’m not sure but if I have to guess... this was on by default on previous version of VS but not anymore on 2008. Because I know that I have enjoyed this feature in the past 🙂 But I might be wrong and I have manually set that on in the past too.
Anyways... Happy hacking!
