I've been working with VS 2008 for a while now. I have always used "Collapse to Definitions". For some reason the context menu no longer shows that option.

in Options->Text Editor->Basic the Enable Outlining Mode is checked.

Don't know what to do.

try Ctrl M, O   (hold ctrl, hit M, hit O) . . . that will collapse for you.
      Ctrl M, L   to expand all.

Thanks for the assist. That works well.

I was still looking for the selection in the context menu.

Note: many of my windows also disappeared and I had to reopen them. Such as Error List, Immediate Window and Bookmarks.
