Learn how to use the exercise files that come with Visual Studio 2015 Essentials 05: Code Editors and a premium membership.
- If you are a member of lynda.com, you have access to the Exercise Files used throughout this title. I've copied the Exercise Files to my Desktop. Let's take a look. In order to use the Exercise Files in the folder, you'll need to have Visual Studio installed. Each video is numbered. You see that here I have several numbered folders, each one for a chapter in my title. This is the first chapter. If I open this up, I see a numbered folder for each movie.
Let's pick this Hover one and then open up the Hover Tips folder. In here, you'll see there's an .sln file. Since I have Visual Studio installed, I can double-click on this .sln file, and Windows will launch Visual Studio and then load the solution and project. Now, Visual Studio is loaded. I can click on Solution Explorer and see all the files that I'll use in this exercise. Now that you've seen how to open the Exercise Files, let's get started.
