Navigating and searching

As a code base grows it's important to be able to understand and find things quickly in your solution. The Solution Explorer we were used to in Visual Studio 2010 was good for being able to understand how files were organized into the various projects of a solution, but it didn't do much more than that.

With Visual Studio 2012, Microsoft has revisited Solution Explorer and given it an overhaul. It still contains all the functionality you know from the old Solution Explorer and adds to that a range of new features intended to make navigating and searching within your solution a more powerful, yet simpler experience.
