Locate in Tree

Is it possible to add a "locate in tree" feature similar to the one in IDEA?

If I've got a file open, I often want to find it in the solution explorer/class viewer and a keystroke to do this would be helpful.

It's probably possible but I do not think we can add it in the upcoming
release since the set of features is frozen.

That's fine, as long as it gets in there in the end.

If I understood well what you are asking for, you can have something
similar adding the command "Track Activity in Solution Explorer" on one
of the available toolbars (or define a shortcut). This command can be
found in the Customize toolbar dialog under the tab "Commands" and the
category "View". This command will switch on/off the automatic select in
the Solution Explorer of the active source file. Of course this works
only for the solution explorer.

Yes you are correct. That was one of the first features I turned off when I installed Visual Studio because it makes navigating files very clunky, and you soon get a large fully-opened tree.

I don't want it to track every file, just ones I want to locate specifically.

Yes, you are right, I did the same. But I have put this command in the
toolbar so I can turn it on just when I need it and then turn it back
off. I know it is a little bit clumsy but with two clicks (on/off)
instead of just one you get something ;)
