Source Control Explorer includes a folders pane that can be opened and closed to make it easier to navigate through team project version control folders and files. The following procedures demonstrate how to open and close the Folders pane in Source Control Explorer.
To perform these procedures, you must be a member of the Team Foundation Valid Users security group. For more information, see Team Foundation Server Permissions.
