Sara implied this possibility existed in a previous tip when she introduced all the various IDE docking
targets (see Tip 4.13). But she wanted to call it out specifically since it is rare to see a tool window in
this position.

right now. But there’s nothing preventing you from docking your own tool windows up there, as
illustrated with the Solution Explorer in the preceding screen shot.
