    When I double click a file in the Solution Explorer I don't want the XML file to be shown by default, it clutters the view and I very rarely want to look at or adjust the xml file that goes with an Apex class.

    Could it be an option to hide the XML files altogether?

      Hi Adam,

      Absolutely understand the request, as sometimes that -meta.xml files are a bit annoying, especially when you do not use them often. So we already have a solution for that :)

      In the Main Menu navigate to the Tools -> Options and there find the Projects -> Presentation section. There you will see the 'Hide project items metadata' checkbox - once checked it'll ensure that you won't see -meta.xml files in the Solution Explorer.

      Hope this helps.

      Thank you,
