Remove default feature for following current document in Solution Explorer

Instead of following the selected document within the Solution Explorer a feature could be added to the right click menu of the document or the document's tab to Open in Solution Explorer. This would allow one to conveniently trace back to where the document exists in the solution but without the sometimes unwanted side effect of having your current selected node in Solution Explorer lost just because a different document was activated/selected/focused in the IDE>

        This is already in the VS11 beta - Look under the "Projects and Solutions" root note in Tools->Options...

        Hmm, this happens in VS 2008, but it doesn't happen in VS 2010 Express. Already fixed I guess.

        Totally agree. After I take the time to collapse all sorts of nodes in Solution Explorer, the instant I click the code window, a bunch of nodes that I just collapsed are open again!!
