People. Paper. Electrons | Visual Studio: Show active file in solution explorer:


There is actually a setting in Visual Studio that does this automatically.

Tools – Options – Projects and Solutions – Track Active Item in Solution Explorer


That works, but it's awfully Solution Explorer spammy.  I've installed the "Collapse Selection in Solution Explorer" add-on already just to combat my own spam...  we'll see, I guess.

Update 20150730: This function is in VS 2012+ by default, as advertised.
