How to get to Design tab in Visual Studio 2010 for winforms development

Hello experts,
I am new to Visual Studio 2010 and I am developing a simple Windows Form. When I double click the file in solution explorer it sometimes comes up with the .cs code. How do I toggle to design view? I don't see a design tab like I used to use in Visual Studio 2008 for asp.net development.

Thanks.

- on your project file, highlight the form entry.
- Just right click and select view designer on the context menu

I included a screenshot to complement my previous comments.
regarding asp.net, when you right click the webfile (in projects) , there is a viw designer or markup menu items that you can choose from.

OK, that seems to be working. What happened to the Design/Split/Source buttons that were in Visual Studio 2008? Do you know if there is anyway to get them back?

WinForms do not have the Design/Split/Source (only ASP.Net forms and WPF).

I already answer your question. (Use context menu for win forms)
Regarding your post- question (Asp.net): The Design/Split/Source buttons are already present in VS2010. Some questions for you:
1) Did you install VS2010 properly? Do you include visual web developer?
2) When you create a new web site using new project option. Does default.aspx page is shown and you can see the Design/Split/Source buttons?
