There might have been situations when you opened your project in Visual Studio and noticed that several files opened up as a consequence. If you want to locate where these files are within the project structure, there is no simple way you can achieve this in Visual Studio. At present, you need to check the full path first and then manually navigate to the file in the solution explorer. BizTalk NoS Ultimate add-in's "Locate it" feature offers an easy way to accomplish this. Another advantage of the locate it feature is that even if the solution explorer window is not opened, this feature will find the file and automatically open the Solution Explorer window.
