When you save a solution, it's given the file extension .sln (such as WinHello.sln), and all the projects in the solution are saved with the extension .vbproj. Here's a list of the types of file extensions you'll see in files in VB .NET, and the kinds of files they correspond to; the most popular file extension is .vb. This is a useful list, because if VB .NET has added files to your solution that you haven't expected, you often can figure them out by their file extension:
.vb-Can be a basic Windows form, a code file, a module file for storing functions, a user control, a data form, a custom control, an inherited form, a Web custom control, an inherited user control, a Windows service, a custom setup file, an image file for creating a custom icon, or an AssemblyInfo file (used to store assembly information such as versioning and assembly name).
.xsd-An XML schema provided to create typed datasets.
.xml-An XML document file.
.htm-An HTML document.

.xslt-An XSLT stylesheet file, used to transform XML documents and XML schemas.

.rpt-A Crystal Report.
.bmp-A bitmap file.
.vbs-A VBScript file.
.wsf-A Windows scripting file.
.aspx-A Web form.
.asp-An active server page.
.asmx-A Web service class.
.vsdisco-A dynamic discovery project; .vsdisco provides a means to enumerate all Web Services and all schemas in a Web project.
