Pressing the Show All Files when right clicking on a -File- doesn't work at all. The checkbox changes but nothing happens.

The display options don't affect the whole tree, only the subtree from the node you change the option on.

It probably makes sense to hide this option for files, and only show it for folders and projects.

This option is now only available for solution nodes. Can this be closed?
