What is a(n) SLN file??

The SLN file extension is used by Microsoft Visual Studio. It contains project-specific settings, tools for creating and editing source code, and other default project settings.

The SLN file extension is an XML-based configuration file that contains the necessary information for Visual Studio projects. The files are usually created in the same folder as the project, but they can also be saved as separate files. For example, a VB project would have a .sln file in its root folder while a C++ project would have a .sln file in its source code folder.

The SLN files are typically opened with Visual Studio as opposed to being edited with any text editor because of their complexity and dependency on specific code libraries which cannot be easily understood by other software applications
