Is there a way to lookup ANY file in my solution by name or partial name?

Such a search would include all projects included in the solution.

Tom,

There is the Solution Navigator that comes with the Visual Studio Productivity Power Tools extension, if you have Visual Studio.NET 2010

Use the "Navigate To" command (CTRL + , (comma)). It will match file names, class names, or member names. It's a great tool when you know you're looking for something and can't remember exactly where it is in the solution.
