Sometimes it's the little things that make life easier. While working I frequently find myself dropping to the Explorer folder level for a number of scenarios:
- Tortoise SVN/Subversion checking
- Non-code files checking in Web Application Projects
- Trace/log files for applications
just to name a few.
In the past I'd squirrel over to Explorer and navigate into the directory to get there.
In Visual Studio 2008 there's a super simple menu option that makes this process easier - a new project context menu option that lets you Open Folder in Windows Explorer:
this is such a little trivial thing but it's one that I find myself using constantly these days and it's a welcome addition in VS 2008.
There are lots of little usability tweaks like this scattered all over VS 2008 - it pays to take a quick look through menus you use frequently and see if there are new features buried that you might have missed out of habit - I didn't find this until a week into my Orcas beta...
I'll be at DevIntersection in Vegas this fall giving sessions on ASP.NET Core with Angular and Localization. Thinking of coming? Use discount code STRAHL and save a few bucks. If you do be sure to stop by and say hello!
