Visual Studio 2012 Tip of the day

January 12th, 2013 by admin Leave a reply »

I have multiple screens when I am at work so when I take my laptop home I like to work on that and as a result I have issues with windows not showing up on the screen. If you are like most Visual Studio users you make heavy use of the ‘Find in Files’ tool (CTRL+SHIFT+F), its a very handy tool. Well, if you run multiple monitors and you try to find it, it will more than likely be somewhere else and you won’t be able to find it. If you would like this window to show up, it’s gonna cost you some personalization to your studio environment, but it was worth it to me, so I went ahead and did this to get my find tool back:

Just simply Navigate to Window > Reset Window Layout, and agree to the Are you sure you want to…? prompt, that will reset your docked windows but will bring back these floating ones, but these little floating windows are pretty valuable IMO, I hope this helps.
