Visual C++ Enterprise Edition 6.0

I have been usng a standard screen layout for all my programming work in Visual C++.  It is the default layout that comes up when startig the program. It shows class, file, and resources on the left. The middle shows code. The bottom shows compile results and search results. I've been using it for 6 months successfully. I did something I cannot remember, and the beautiful and familiar layout is gone. I can get everything with individual windows, but t's clunky. Three hours of tinkering has been futile. How can I get this original layout back? Thanks.

in Visual Studio.NET 2005 double-clicking on the window you want to place puts it again the same place where it can go. Try double-click

Hi,

You can reset your window layout by ,

1) "Right clicking" your mouse on anywhere in the "Toolbar" or "Menu bar".


2) you get all the "windows" as options . You can choose the window you want. then it will appear as you wish.



Regards,

Vinod Sankaranarayanan

Try doing a 'repair' installation - that should set settings (such as layout) back to the original values.

you can go to tools-->options->environment->general and there is a reset window layout button there--

also there is an xml file (can't remember where) that you can copy and save somewhere else as a backup for your prefered setup and if it ever gets hosed you can just paste it back in -- i will look for it and post back if i find

There is such an option in Visual Studio.NET 2005 and it works well.

p_davis, Elliot123 talks of Visual Studio 6 - OK, I don't have the enterprise version of that but I don't see that option anywhere.
