Hello msdixon

If I press escape in the Find window it, just shifts the focus from the Find window to the main window.  It does not close the Find window.

Same here, If I have the find window up and has focus when I press Esc it closes it.

I had the Find window docked on the bottom of the IDE.  Escape does not close the Find window in that case.  But I have just tried undocking the Find window.  Once I had done that, Escape did close the Find window.  

I expect you all have the Find window undocked.  I am a new user of Visual InterDev and perhaps the Find window appeared initially docked by default, I'm not sure.

It is not initially docked by default...I can tell you that for sure as I hardly ever use Interdev and haven't changed anything of the setup... :-)
