A train station is where the train stops. A bus station is where the bus stops. On my desk, I have a work station....
My programs never have bugs, they just develop random features.
Due to various reasons I've ended up working on multiple VS projects all with the same name.
I've got 2 on the go and am just about to get started on the 3rd.
Please don't argue about how I ended up in this position, as that's not something I can fix right now.
The problem is that if I've got these projects opened at the same time, I get confused as to which one I'm looking at. They are of course saved under different paths so if I spend the time to interrogate the file paths of .cpps and what have you I should be OK.
But isn't there any easier way of telling apart the two VS instances I've got running both with MyProject.sln opened, both the seemingly identical code in them (unless you look at them under a microscope)?
I've been there and this is what works for me: I hold the mouse pointer over the tab for the file and it gives the full path to the location of the file. From this you should be able to differentiate which one you are looking at.
I have a question on StackOverflow on How to change the title bar text of Visual Studio[^]. Maybe some of the feedback there can help you do that, and hopefully that may help you. I haven't tried any of the answers on VS 2012, or even on 2010 though.
