hi guys,
i do know what does solution explorer looks like and it can include projects in heiarchy shows properties, references and other things,
but i am confused about what is the use of solution?
Is there any corresponding thing in C or C++ that could help me understand it better?

Short and simple a solution file simply ties in the various projects into a simple hierarchy just like a project file ties in all the code and resource files together into a project.
The solution file also contains some other settings and stuff like deployment info too.

I have no idea what C/C++ has but one way to think of solution files is that you can compare it to Java's Workspace concept, a workspace allows you to put your projects together too.
