Visual Studio not loading few files and folder in Solution Explorer

Posted on May 30, 2018 by Suresh Kamrushi in asp.net

I am building a project in C# MVC4 using Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 and getting this issue. Whenever i add or delete any project files from explorer it does not reflects in solution explorer. Then I made practice to update files and folder from solution explorer itself to avoid such issue.
But sometime it happens like if we get any new files/folder during SVN updates it does not reflect in solution explorer. To overcome this issue you can do following steps to resolve it:

1. Open Visual Studio and open the project.
2. Click on “Project” in menu and look for “Show All Files”.
VS_Show_All_Files

3) This option will show all files/folders added outside Solution Explorer.
4) Select all files and folder which you want to include and right click and choose “Include in Project”
VS_Project_Files_folders
Now it start showing in your solution explorer.
