I suggest you ...

Display format for Find-all-search results

Rather than showing the entire path of each file, the resultset can be displayed as a tree view. Considering the following results:


Find all "view", Match case, Subfolders, Find Results 1, Current Project: CBES - Crowd Monitor\CBES - Crowd Monitor.csproj, ""

C:\Users\ABM-7\Documents\Visual Studio 2010\Projects\CBES - Crowd Monitor\CBES - Crowd Monitor\Content\themes\base\jquery.ui.theme.css(15): * To view and modify this theme, visit http://jqueryui.com/themeroller/

C:\Users\ABM-7\Documents\Visual Studio 2010\Projects\CBES - Crowd Monitor\CBES - Crowd Monitor\Scripts\jquery-1.5.1-vsdoc.js(2732): props: "altKey attrChange attrName bubbles button cancelable charCode clientX clientY ctrlKey currentTarget data detail eventPhase fromElement handler keyCode layerX layerY metaKey newValue offsetX offsetY pageX pageY prevValue relatedNode relatedTarget screenX screenY shiftKey srcElement target toElement view wheelDelta which".split(" "),

C:\Users\ABM-7\Documents\Visual Studio 2010\Projects\CBES - Crowd Monitor\CBES - Crowd Monitor\Scripts\jquery-1.5.1.js(2585): props: "altKey attrChange attrName bubbles button cancelable charCode clientX clientY ctrlKey currentTarget data detail eventPhase fromElement handler keyCode layerX layerY metaKey newValue offsetX offsetY pageX pageY prevValue relatedNode relatedTarget screenX screenY shiftKey srcElement target toElement view wheelDelta which".split(" "),

... it can be displayed in a tree-view like:

Find all "view", Match case, Subfolders, Find Results 1, Current Project: CBES - Crowd Monitor\CBES - Crowd Monitor.csproj, ""

▼ C:\Users\ABM-7\Documents\Visual Studio 2010\Projects\CBES - Crowd Monitor\CBES - Crowd Monitor\
|
| ▼ Content\themes\base\jquery.ui.theme.css
| 15: * To view and modify this theme, visit http://jqueryui.com/themeroller/
|
| ▼ Scripts\

| ▼ jquery-1.5.1-vsdoc.js
| 2732: props: "altKey attrChange attrName bubbles button cancelable charCode clientX clientY ctrlKey currentTarget data detail eventPhase fromElement handler keyCode layerX layerY metaKey newValue offsetX offsetY pageX pageY prevValue relatedNode relatedTarget screenX screenY shiftKey srcElement target toElement view wheelDelta which".split(" "),

| ▼ jquery-1.5.1.js
| 2585: props: "altKey attrChange attrName bubbles button cancelable charCode clientX clientY ctrlKey currentTarget data detail eventPhase fromElement handler keyCode layerX layerY metaKey newValue offsetX offsetY pageX pageY prevValue relatedNode relatedTarget screenX screenY shiftKey srcElement target toElement view wheelDelta which".split(" "),

IMO, this way it would look more elegant!

        Please don't display it like that. Yes putting in the absolute path is not necessary, 99% of all projects have a common solution base, make the path relative to that. but the important part is to use columns so that the line text always starts at the same X point..
