Do you like JScript Intellisense feature but have trouble seeing variables or methods you expect to see in JScript Intellisense?  Instead of trying to close files or other work around's you can simply try to “Update Intellisense” command manually before invoking intellisense.

From keyboard:

Ctrl+Shift+j will do it.  Wait for “Updating Intellisense…” message on status bar then try invoking Intellisense again.

From Menu:

Select Edit menu, then Intellisense-Update JScript Intellisense.  Again, wait for “Updating Intellisense…” message on status bar then invoke intellisense.
