Last month the guys from Mindscape released a Visual Studio File Explorer Addin. This is really useful if you don't have good source control integration within Visual Studio, or you want access to the full goodness available from an explorer window, but within Visual Studio.

The feature list:

  • Fully Shell Enabled – So shell extensions like TortoiseSVN work just fine.
  • Command Prompt Here – Opens a command prompt at the current folder.
  • Snap to Solution – Sets the root folder to the current solution’s folder.
  • Split View – Windows Explorer style.
  • Open Item – Either in Visual Studio or the registered application.
  • Options Dialog – For configuring the add-in.
