Occasionally I feel the need of opening a folder/package in Windows Explorer right from my favorite IDE’s (Eclipse or Visual Studio), I have been going through the pain of manually find the folder, well, a little bit of Google Search helps.

The Eclipse way: StartExplorer plugin

The Visual Studio way: PowerCommands for Visual Studio Addin from Microsoft


For those who hate plugin’s and wish to add such feature manually in Eclipse, there are approaches through External Tools over here, and here.
