This is one of those features she always forgets. The window management developer and she were discussing another tip, when he showed her the autohide channel context menu.

Right-click the tool window autohide channel to invoke the context menu, and click one of the tool windows to slide it out from hiding.

Note in the picture that the Solution Explorer and Class View tabs are side by side, whereas the Properties tab has some space separating it from the other tabs. This is because Solution Explorer and Class View are docked together and the Properties browser is docked next to it, along the edge.

Happy Programming! =)
