Sometimes the easiest thing in the world can take you a while to figure out. Take searching for a changeset in Visual Studio's TFS Source Explorer.

Luckily if super easy to do!

When you're in the Source Explorer, simply press Ctrl + G and the Find ChangeSet dialog will appear. From here you can type the changeset number and press OK.

Easy when you know how!
