Quickly Access an TFS item using `Work-Item Tracking` in Visual Studio 2010

Normally, to access a work-item in TFS, we must select Work Items node, choose the queries containing the list of work-item, then find that work-item.

Since doing so is very time-consuming especially when the number of work-items is large, or the tfs server is slow etc.

In Visual Studio 2010 can support the Work-Item Tracking toolbar for quick access to work-items by their IDs without having to make many steps as above.


Step 1:

Right click an empty space on menu bar in VS 2010
