Grr I accidentally closed the Locals and Call Stack windows in Visual Studio and I can't figure out how to open them again.

How do I open them back up?

do you mean visual studio.net (C#) or vb6 ?
in vb6:
Call Stack: <ctrl><L>
locals : View -> Locals Window

C#, start running/debugging a project: then see debug -> Windows -> submenues...)
Call Stack: <ctrl><alt><c>
locals: <ctrl><alt><v>  , L

When debugging click on Debug -> Window -> Locals Ctrl + D, L or Call Stack Ctrl + D, C

Ok thanks.  I found that while searching but when I first tried them I didn't have the debugger running.  To get the windows up I needed to do the commands with the debugger running (duh).

Once your program is running, there should be a button on the toolbar (might be defaulted to breakpoints, but it is a drop down button). Click it, and choose locals, or call stack. On mine, it's almost in the dead center at the top.
