Highlighting the current file in Solution Explorer

Every time I switch version of Visual Studio I need to go looking for how to enable this feature.

When I’m working on a file, I want to see that file highlighted in solution explorer, not some other file.  I don’t want to have to go searching for the current file.  To achieve this, just go to Options>Projects and solutions>General and pick Track Active Item in Solution Explorer.

  1. Great! Just what I needed. Installed VS2012 on new laptop and was not tracking what report I was on in Solution Explorer… Thanks!
