Tip 4.12: How to show the Tile Horizontally and Tile Vertically buttons in the Window Windows dialog box

When Sara initially wrote this tip, she had a nightmare that she broke her consecutive tip series on her blog by forgetting to post a tip. Anyway, while writing tips on the window management series, these buttons caught her eye. She recalled how back in the Visual Studio 2005 development stage she had no clue how to activate them. In fact, she nearly opened a bug claiming that they never become available.

What a tremendous work ethic. Sara reminds me of Mary Kirtland COM+ “can’t remember the last time she was home for dinner”. I bow to you.

 

Starting in Visual Studio 2005, the IDE hides the Tile Horizontally and Tile Vertically buttons on the Window Windows dialog box until you are in MDI mode (discussed in Tip 4.11) with several files open.
