You should set up your project to use a version control system such as TFS, CVS, Subversion, etc.

We use TFS for our VS2010 projects.  I have not used CVS or Subversion with VS, but I believe there are plugins available.

Regarding TFS, follow the link below for the Microsoft TFS web site where you can find information on how to install and configure it.

Hi Kalpesh,

You can setup Visual Source Safe (for Version Control). Which supports integration with VS 2010. Once you install VSS, you need to login each time you open your project solution in VS 2010. And can see which user is working on which file.

Hope it helps,

Yes, you can use VSS to allow multiple developers to work on same file(multiple check-out). In that case you need to manage Merge Conflict that arises when a developer tries to submit the file back to (Check In) sourcesafe database.

Read this introduction on VSS 2005 about Parallel Development using VSS 2005.

You will find on internet a lot of articles about how to's of VSS.

The problem you reported seems to be related to having all developers working out of the same project directory.  Once you start using a source control system, each developer will have their own workspace.  The source code is stored on a central repository and developers check in / out files from there as needed.  The version control system will then manage merges and conflicts.
