Hi, there. I made a plugin for Visual Studio 2008 which I'd like to share with you. The plugin allows you to quickly find and open any solution file. Just hit the shortcut key, type a few letters from anywhere in the file name and hit enter. You can also use wildcards (?, *) to match file name patterns. This closely mimics the Open Resource command which is well known to Eclipse users. This can be useful to quickly jump to files which are buried deeply somewhere in the solution tree. I myself don't use the solution explorer for opening source files anymore. For more details and to download the plugin see: http://visualstudiogallery.com/ExtensionDetails.aspx?ExtensionID=e4e906ee-2a2a-459b-85e8-df4b1c5666d1 or http://kutny.net/vsopen/ If there's enough interest it can be ported to visual studio 2005 too (just let me know). Martin
