Check out Tools > Options > Projects and Solutions, and then check off "Track Active Item in Solution Explorer". This will make whichever file you’re viewing/editing inside of Visual Studio automatically be selected in Solution Explorer and if your Windows color scheme is set up properly, it will in fact be darker.

This option used to be on by default in 2003 and maybe 2005, but 2008 has it disabled by default now… I personally prefer it turned on.


Side Tip:

In Visual Studio 2008 if you want to view Immediate window Press Ctrl+Alt+I
