How to automatically highlight your current file in the Solution Explorer

the simplest way to take a screenshot in Windows 10

Right after I install Visual Studio, my next port of call is to update VS to automatically highlight the current file I'm working on in the Solution Explorer.

This can be handy if you need to quick find the file you're working on to figure out where it sits in your project.

To do this simply open up Tools -> Options -> Projects and Solutions -> General and check the box that says "Track Active item in Solution Explorer".

Now, every time you work on a file in Visual Studio, it will auto select that file in the Solution Explorer so you no longer need to go looking for the file in this view.
