I use two monitors as an expanded desktop at work. The main monitor I use to keep an eye on various applications, while the second monitor I use to work on projects.  When I am working on a userform for Excel 2010, the controls toolbox keeps appearing on my main monitor.  Is there a way to dock the tool box or, at least, lock it to a specific location on my userform pane?

zepold,

In the VB Editor the ToolBox can be hidden by going to View and clicking on the ToolBox option.

Sorry, that's not what I meant.  I am using the toolbox while working on my project, but everytime I click on the userform, the toolbox appears on my main monitor.  I want it to appear on the monitor where I have the VBA editor, which is my secondary screen.  It's just a matter of convenience and aesthetics and not a functional necessity.  

Thanks,

zepold,

To hide it, just click the ToolBox icon in the standard toobar in the VBEditor.

zepold,

I've never worked on a two monitor setup so I have no idea how it's controlled.

You can't dock it, but does it not remember the position you move it to?

rorya,

No, it always goes back to its original position, no matter where I move it to.
