Tip 7.12: How to hide or show a solution in the Solution Explorer

Sometimes, you might find yourself in a state where the solution is not shown. For example, some of the default environment settings, like the Visual Basic Development Settings, have this behavior enabled.

If you find yourself in this state and want the solution back, go to Tools–Options–Projects And Solutions–General and check the Always Show Solution check box.

Having said all this, she’ll warn you that Visual Studio overrides this setting and always shows the solution if the solution has two or more projects in it.

Happy Programming! =)
