How do I rename C++ file?  I am using Visual Studio 2005 environment running Windows Vista Home Premium.  Do I go to Windows Explorer to rename the file.  Will it automatically show the renamed file in the solution explorer window of Visual Stuido 2005?

Thanks.

No, I'd recommend that you rename the file from inside Visual Studio 2005.

The "Solution Explorer" (Ctrl-Alt-L) is where all of the source files are listed.   Just right click on the file, and select "Rename".
