VS 2005: Synchronize the Currently Open File with Solution Explorer

Hello guys

In VS 2003 whenever a file was edited, the solution explorer was automatically synchronized with it, i.e. the currently open file was selected in solution explorer and was visible. It was very easy to find where the file is, work with files from the same folder, etc. In VS 2005 this option is not available (at least not by default) and I cannot find how to turn it on (if possible). Can you tell me if and how this can be made?
