 VS   VB6   VB5 

The Favorite Solutions / Projects feature allows you to create a list of solutions / projects that you use often:

FavoriteSolutions

From the Favorite Solutions / Projects window you can load a solution or project (keeping the window open or not), remove a solution / project from the list, add a solution / project to the list and open the folder of a solution / project in the Windows Explorer. You have also a toggle button to set whether to reuse the current instance of the IDE if it is the same version than the version of the solution / project being loaded, rather than starting a new IDE instance (which is always the case when versions don't match).

  • The MZ-Tools | Other Utilities | Add Current Solution / Project To Favorites menu.
     
  • The Add Current Solution / Project To Favorites button on the MZ-Tools - Other Utilities toolbar.
