Visual Studio – Add File As Link

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/07/04

Since I forget where they hid the [WayBack] Visual Studio – Add File As Link feature, two images from the linked post:

  1. The icon in the link is different from the normal file:
  2. Adding as a link is  not a separate menu item, but a modification of the file open dialog overlaying the default Add button with two more options: Add; Add as Link (note Show Previous Versions is a feature of non-Home version of Windows Vista and up).
    Do not double click the file name, as that will add (AND COPY TO THE CURRENT PROJECT DIRECTORY !!!1!!!) that file to your current project.

A step by step instruction is at [WayBack] c# – Add File as a Link on Visual Studio – Debug vs Publish – Stack Overflow.
