Today while googling, I came across some pretty nifty add-ins for Visual Studio 2003.
VSFileFinder2003 - This will create a tab window, kinda like the solution explorer. It is a file searcher. As you type more of the filename, it will narrow down the list of filenames so you can easily find that file you are looking for. Good for large projects where there are many files and they are buried under different levels of directories.
VSTabs - This nifty add-in groups up all your open files. It will group files with the same name, making it easy to switch between that test.c and test.h file.
All these add-ins have installers that automatically install the add-ins to visual studio 2003. I believe they might work on Vistual Studio 2005, check out the website at http://www.zero-one-zero.com/vs/
…and just in case you didn’t know, I discovered today that you can use CTRL RW (CTRL followed by R followed by W) to toggle visible whitespace on/off or from the menu bar Edit->Advanced->View Whitespace.
Just thought I’d share these findings with you all.
