Quickly Find Visual Studio Solutions
If you want to easily find solutions when you open up Visual Studio 2010 and you don't want to click Open Project and browse for the solution you need, then you need to get the extension start page for VS 2010
QuickSolutionsStartPage[^], you basically set-up which folders your .sln files are in and then when you start up VS. Your start page will give you a text box that you can type in to filter the solutions and easily find the solution you want.

The Green Lines will be found, The Red lines won't.
example of what won't be found:
-My Project
---The Solution File.sln
---The Solution Folder
-----A Solution File In A Lower Folder.sln
-----Another Folder
-----Another Folder 2
example of what will be found:
-My Project
---The Solution File.sln
---The Solution Folder
-----More Files
---Another Solution file in the Same Directory.sln
---Another Solution Folder
-----More Files in the Second Solution
