2. Create or open any project.
3. Right click on Project.
4. Select 'Add'

Actual result: When user right click on Project under solution and select 'Add', 'Add existing folder' link does not appear.

Yeah in VS there is just the Add Existing Item option, which doesn't allow you to select folders.

You can drag and drop folders into the solution, but I'm not sure you can do it from the right click menu.

I'll put this as an enhancement for now.

This is not on roadmap.
