I suggest you ...

Enable "compare shelved file with local edits"

If you are interacting with a file in a shelveset, you get 3 options to compare the file in the shelveset to:

1. Compare with Unmodified Version: shelved file vs. version last gotten in the workspace that made the shelf

2. Compare with Workspace Version: shelved file vs. version last gotten in the local workspace (but without any local changes)

3. Compare with Latest Version: shelved file vs. latest version in TFS

*** I frequently want this fourth option, which is notably absent ***

4. Compare with local Version: shelved file vs. version last gotten in the local workspace (including local changes)
