The bin directory does not show up in your solution because it is not a part of the solution. It is the directory where the compiled files of your project(s) get placed after they are built. It's probably not a good idea to add the folder to your solution, but to do so you can  select the "Show All Files" option in Solution Explorer:

Then you should see the bin folder show up in Solution Explorer. Right-click it, then select "Include In Project."

Just what I needed.  Now I can add the Data.Visualization dll's needed for the chart control.

Just be careful. That directory is volatile--every time you (re)build you project(s), that directory will be overwritten with new files. If you mistakenly remove references to assemblies from your various projects, then you may encounter the DLLs you are interested in no longer appearing in that directory.
