why is list of active files empty? RRS feed

  • Question

  • How do I get the list of active files to be restored the next time I open visual studio?   When I start Visual Studio and open a solution the list of active files is empty.

  • Tools / Options / Project and Solution / Track Active Item in Solution Explorer

    Or if the problem is specific to that one solution it probably comes with corrupted .suo and .user files.

    So delete these files and reopen... to recreate the files. Open a few files in the project, Exit and Restart to see if fixed...
