The recursive collapse does not work at all as of today. It only works if every level was already expanded. After doing it once and then opening solution folders I find myself having to redo it over and over which is useless. Code Maid works a lot better than this. I was hoping to not have to install something with other unneeded functionality. I really just want something like this one that actually works so that I don't end up with a bunch of unneeded functionality in addition to what I need.
Long, long overdue! Have been bemused for years that something this basic would have been left out in the first place.
I've been sitting here for 5 minutes waiting for it to collapse a selection, only 3 levels deep. This plugin is crap, it's easier to use the Powertools version called Collapse Projects: http://archive.
Does exactly what I need, and very easy to install. Only detractor is the lack of "expand" for ctrl+alt+Num(+)
It does what it promises, but is veeery slow doing it. Collapsing a minor project with just some hundred items lasts more than 20 seconds - I'm faster doing this manually - at least when only collapsing the first level, which is good enough in most use cases.
Superb tool... solved my big issue :-)
As others have said, should be a built-in feature. Also, would be nice if it toggled (collapse / expand).
Simple, clean, effective. This should absolutely be built-in!
This is cool. Although, it would be nice if it expanded all the nodes as well.
Perfect. Should be built-in.
Lightweight, works as described - awesome. Sometimes it's the little things in life that make my day go smoothly. Like a Collapse button in my solution explorer.
Works well and is faster then then PowerCommands implementation! I also like that it's stand alone.
Thank you, very useful.
Agreed.. should be built-in
This should've been a built-in feature in every Visual Studio since forever. Works just as expected.
