Editing your file system mappings for TFS paths

So, as you may or may not know, when using Microsoft Team Foundation Server for version control, TFS maps remote project paths into local file system patmhs for checkout, etc. As I learned today, there are times when you check out the wrong path, and/or map it to the wrong path in the file system. If you ever need to modify or just nuke your file system mappings in TFS, here's how you go about doing it :

Team Explorer -> Source Control (double click) -> Workspaces (dropdown) -> Workspaces ...

Once you've selected your workspace in the dialog that comes up (you'll likely only have one anyway), click on :

Edit ... -> Working Folders

... and then select the folder to file system mappings that you want to remove, or create whatever new file system mappings you want right there.
