This was a user-submitted tip from back in May 2008. I really do read all incoming email, but it just takes me a while to respond.
And yet again, I didn’t know about this functionality. I find these little things about the IDE fascinating, because there’s only 5 other ways to open the project properties. But this one wins the award for being the most hidden! =D
Double-click the properties folder in Solution Explorer (whether it is expanded or collapsed) to open the project properties page.
(I’m guessing this works in 2005. If not, please let me know.)
