Oftentimes I'd like to perform a task on the solution, but in Visual Studio solutions with only one project, the solution doesn't show by default.
Thanks to K. Scott Allen in a Pluralsight video (unfortunately, I forget which one as I've been browsing around a lot), you can take the following steps to get VS to always show the solution:
- Tools Menu --> Options...
- Expand the Projects and Solutions category
- Click General
- Check the Always Show Solution box.
And voila! A solution will always be there.
