Arranging Windows

Like any Windows application, you can control the individual windows in Visual Studio through the View and Window menus or by dragging the title bar of a window.

The View menu controls the display of tool windows. (Don’t confuse “tool window” with “Toolbox”. The Toolbox is a tool window, but so are the Properties window and the Solution Explorer.)

Do you remember how to open a document window? Double-click on its name in the Solution Explorer.

The Window menu controls the display of open windows in the IDE. The most important item on this menu might be Reset Window Layout, which puts everything back in place when you get things messed up. (And you will, trust me.)
