There are two ways to create a website in VS.

If you use "File|New Website" VS will create the solution files as a subfolder of its default projects location, regardless of where you create the website. This could account for why you are seeing the solution file somewhere else.

 This default folder is set in Tools|Options|Projects & Solutions.

If you use "File|NewProject" and choose "ASP.NET web application" from the list of possible templates, then the solution files and website source files all wind up in the same folder -- the one you specify in the "location" box.

Not sure where those long filenames are coming from, tho.
