Open Containing Folder

Sara Ford writes about the “Open Containing Folder” command in Visual Studio.  I use that sometimes, but it won’t work on “temporary” projects, instead that menu appears grayed out.  The trick here is to add a Explorer item to your Tools menu, and give it the argument of $(ItemDir)

This allows you to open the containing folder of any item, whether the project is temporary or otherwise 🙂
