One of the best things about Solution Explorer is that I can right-click on a Project, pick "Open Folder in File Explorer" and, a second later, I'm in Windows Explorer, able to work with the files that make up the project. This also works with Solutions or, really, any folder displayed in Solution Explorer (for example, if you have Show All Files turned on, you can use this with the bin folder or obj folders).
Often, however, I'm not focused on the Project (or Solution) as a whole: I'm interested in one specific file -- usually, the one that I have open in my editor window. When that's the case, I can just right-click on the file's editor tab and select "Open Containing Folder." This not only opens the appropriate folder in Windows Explorer, it also selects and highlights the file I'm interested in.

Emphasizing its "dev" focus, Microsoft trumpeted its Dev Home, Dev Drive and Dev Box offerings at its Build 2023 developer conference this week.
It's getting easier to use natural language to have AI create your low-code business apps.
Two major themes permeating the conference are copilots -- AI assistants across a broad swath of products and services -- and plugins, which effectively transform copilots into aggregators, potentially making them one-stop shops for both enterprise and consumer customers.
Among the many AI-related announcements at this week's Microsoft Build 2023 developer conference is a new AI-powered "Q&A Assist" tool for the Microsoft Q&A site, along with new updated AI training and documentation.
At Build 2023, Microsoft revealed updates for Dev Box, a cloud-based developer workstation service.
