I suggest you ...

Add Skip-this-File and Skip-this-Folder to Find and Find/Replace

Scenario: User types Ctrl-F. Find dialog appears. User enters text that is sought and selects "All Open Documents" or "Current Project" or "Entire Solution". User clicks "Find Next" arrow or presses F3 or Alt-F. Sought text is found in a file. User does not care that *that* file has the sought text, but the user is not sure which other file is the one he or she thinks the sought text should be in. Let's say the current file (the one the user does not care about) has 100 instances of the sought text. That means the user has to click the arrow or press F3 or Alt-F 100 times just to get to the next file.

My suggestion is that a feature be added to the Find/Replace dialog box that allows the user to skip the file or the entire folder in which the sought text was just found.

I realize that the "Find All" feature is an alternative way to approach the issue, but that's a different experience.
