Icon Leave Comment
You every had that problem where you are looking for a particular piece of code, but you can't find the project it was in. Are they all named a derivation of WindowsApplication?? or ConsoleApplication??.

Tired opening each possible one in Visual Studio, and it (VS) take ages to loadup.

Then I have the program to assist you.

Note: The Application File requires the folder to be in the same location. (Planning to remove this requirement in a future version)

Double-Click the VS Quick Look icon (The Green Book)
Note: It uses the WebBrowser Control so some Security Programs may question it. (Only Local addresses used).

When run you see the VS Quick Look window.
