Join Walt Ritscher for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Visual Studio 2015 Essentials 02: Getting Comfortable with the IDE.
- If you are a member of lynda.com, you have access to the exercise files used throughout this title. I have copied the exercise files to my desktop. Let's take a look. Each video is numbered. If there is an exercise file available for your video, you'll find it in a matching numbered folder. Let's look at this AutoHiding folder. Within this folder is a Solution folder. And within this folder are a number of files and folders, but the important one is this one called AutoHiding.sln. The .sln file is openable in Visual Studio, or in Blend for Visual Studio.
Since I have Visual Studio installed on my computer, I can double click on the .sln file and it will open inside Visual Studio. Now that you've seen how to open the exercise files, let's get started.

- Working with the Solution Explorer
