Wouldn’t it be cool if you could instantly see which branch your solution is on? And how about selecting one of the other branches and clicking a “Switch” button to switch to the same solution on another branch? Now you can – using BITE – the Branch Info Team Explorer Extension!
Once you’ve installed the extension, you’ll see a new icon on the Team Explorer Home Page:
Click on “Branch Info” to see the extension in action.
You'll be able to see all the branches for the current solution in the "Other Branches" dropdown. Simply click "Switch" to open the solution from a different branch.
