Is it possible to customise Visual Studio's title background colour based on the solution loaded?

I end up needing to have multiple Visual Studio instances open with very similar content, so I'm ending up losing track of what I'm looking at.


I don't think you can get different color schemes configured automatically and have it switch by what solution you load.

But you could try the VSCommands extension, they add something called Solution Badges that might make your life a bit easier.

Get the extension from the gallery at http://visualstudiogallery.msdn.microsoft.com/c6d1c265-7007-405c-a68b-5606af238ece


There is an extension called SolutionColors which is available from Tools -> Extension adnd Updates -> Online and search.

    Just installed it, a nifty little tool. Once installed it can be found under view -> tool bars > Solution Color. – Alex KeySmith Dec 20 '18 at 9:43
