…The edit menu is useful for mostly when you have editors open,…and we'll come back and take a more detailed look at this later.…As you can see, most of the items here…are grayed out because we don't have any editors open.…The View menu allows you to open the many explorers, windows,…and other kinds of views that are available in Visual Studio.…For example, we can come down and select Solution Explorer…under View and you'll notice that Solution Explorer pops out.…That's the same as, of course, clicking right here.…
So in order to open the Solution Explorer, we can select View, Solution Explorer.…We can use the keyboard shortcut that we saw there, Control W…S, or we can actually just click on the Solution Explorer if the title is visible.…If, for example, we close the Solution Explorer, we…could get it back by going to the View menu.…So the view menu is your friend.…When you think you've got something that you…knew was there before and you can't find…it anymore, go to the View menu and that's how to get it back on the screen.…
