Is there a simple way to checkout a file while in my Visual Studio project without having to navigate through the TFS folders and locating the same file?

TFS already has the folder mapping between my local files and TFS, so shouldn't it be possible for TFS to work out the equivalent TFS file to check out?

I'm using VS 2008 and TFS 2005
