Feature Request: Highlight the file I have open and in focus in the Solution Explorer


I love the product, just a simple feature request.

I have a file open that I'm editing and perhaps I change the file's primary class name, I then want to also change the name of the file on disk to match. However, it talks me a little time to locate that file in the Rider solution explorer. Yes, I can search at the top, but I was thinking it would be much easier if Ride simply highlighted in the Solution explore tree the file I currently have in focus. 


Anyway, just an idea.


Hello Angusbmillar,

Thank you for contacting Rider support.

Please try the "Select Opened File" action. You can acces it in solution explorer or via shortcut that can be changed in File | Settings | Keymap if you desire.

Hope it helps. Have a nice day!


Thank you, Dmitry, that certainly does do what I want.

I should have dug deeper.

I am glad to hear that I was able to help.
Should you have any other questions or difficulties in the future, do not hesitate to contact us.
Have a nice day!
