Using the Docking tab

Figure 7-11 shows the Docking tab of the Options dialog box. These options determine how the various windows in the VBE behave. When a window is docked, it is fixed in place along one of the edges of the VBE window. This makes it much easier to identify and locate a particular window. If you turn off all docking, you have a big mess of windows that are very confusing. Generally, you'll find that the default settings work fine.

To dock a window, just drag it to the desired location. For example, you might want to dock the Project Explorer window to the left side of the screen. Just drag its title bar to the left, and you see an outline that shows it docked. Release the mouse and it is docked.

Note Docking windows in the VBE has always been a bit problematic. Often, you find that some windows simply refuse to be docked. I've found that if you persist long enough, the procedure will eventually work. Unfortunately, I don't have any secret window-docking techniques.
