Problem

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.

Solution

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
