"Cool Commands" for VS 2005 is a free and useful little Add-in!

If you're using VS 2005 I highly recommend downloading and installing the nice "Cool Commands" addin, which you can learn about and download here. It adds some really handy right click menus to VS including (my favorites):
  • Command Prompt here
  • Copy/Paste references between projects
  • Demo Font
  • Font resizing using the mouse scroll wheel
  • Right clicking in a code file and choosing "build [current project name]"
And these are just features I liked 5 minutes after installation.
One thing Missing?
I wish it also had something which I have no idea how they missed in VS: Right clicking in a code file and saying "Find this file/project in the solution explorer".  Any ideas where I can install something like that?
