See and possibly unlock files checked out by other team members

Ed Hintz points out that this is easily done with TFS Power Tools and wrote about it in 2007.

  1. In the Source Control Explorer, right click on a parent folder that contains the pending change and choose, “Find in Source Control”.
  2. Choose "Status…".

    Find in Source Control command from TFS power tools
  3. Press the Find button. (optionally you can type in a user and\or wildcards if you want to narrow the search)

    Optionally filter for user and/or wildcards
  4. You will be presented a “Find in Source Control” window.
  5. Select the pending change and press the undo button OR right click Undo…

    Can easily undo changes of other users
  6. Done.
