I’ve been coming up with little songs to keep sane as I post a daily tip for Visual Studio.  Beth Massi swears she’ll catch me on tape singing these one day.  One of them is to the tune of Dunkin’ Donuts (i think it’s their jingle) of "gotta make the donuts" which is "gotta do tip of the day"  Another one I’m trying to perfect is to Phil Collins’s "come dance into the Light" with "It’s the simple things in life!"  Sad, but true. 

Today’s tip is really cool.  I didn’t know this one until a coworker showed me, and this was after 5 years working on the Visual Studio team.

the Solution Explorer supports type-ahead selection, so wherever your current focus + selection is in the tree view, just start typing the full name of your file, and the focus + selection will jump to that match, partial or full.
