Every one who has ever developed a .NET project would know how to get to the GAC simply by:  Start -> Run -> C:\windows\assembly\

But what most people don’t know (at least I din’t  know until Ishai showed me earlier in the year) is how to get to the internal folders with ease, there are a number of ways and the one stated below works well for copying config \ resource files next to the actual Dlls.

Recently a couple of people asked me if\how this could be done so here is the tip:

Start -> Run -> C:\windows\assembly\gac_msil

This should bring up the internal folders in the Global Assembly Cache and you can easily drag drop items in there.
