In the spirit of supporting New Zealand made I’ve just installed the free Visual Studio File Explorer Add-In from Mindscape. It’s a neat idea, and in theory it should suit my developing style pretty well.
The Visual Studio File Explorer Add-in (sexy name we know, but hey, it’s self documenting) is a free Tool Window add-in for VS 2008 that provides a Windows Explorer style file system view. It’s particularly useful for performing routine file system tasks without the need to “context switch” away from Visual Studio, which can be time-consuming over the course of days and weeks.
The ability to set the root folder to anywhere, as well as being able to snap the root to match the current solution’s location are nice touches.
