Visual .Net's most useful enhancement.

Just a quick one. And really simple.

If you’re like me you’ll always be routing through the folder structures to fin where the project is you’re currently working on. Well no more, this is something I added in to my Visual Studio back in the old ages, but it’s one of the first things I do when I install a new version.

Go to the Tools menu and select “External Tools…”, then set up a new item as below:

If you can’t see the image: Set Title to “Project location” (or whatever you like), set Command to “Explorer.exe” and Set arguments to “$(ProjectDir)” (That’s a build in variable that stores the position of you project folder – try the arrow button at the end for other locations)

And that’s it. Just click it when you need to get to your files.
