In the Solution Explorer, you can group projects inside of solution folders to improve the manageability of solutions that contain a large number of projects.

With the focus on the Solution node in the Solution Explorer, the Add New Solution Folder button becomes available. Now you can drag projects into this solution folder, as shown next.


But let’s actually hide the project. Right-click your newly created solution folder and choose Hide Folder. Now the project is hidden, and a new icon appears to unhide the projects. And yes, you can still build successfully in this state.


Happy Programming! =)
