How double-click search result to open file in files tab NOT Find Results tab? [MS Visual Studio 2010]

My development environment got mis-configured.  If I press CTRL-SHIFT-F to search for a keyword in files the Find Results tab is correctly added to the list of tabs at the bottom of the IDE as it should.

USUALLY, when I double-click a particular search result line it opens up the file in the TOP tab set where all my development files are.

NOW, it's opening up the C# file in the bottom tab set, a peer with the Find Results tab, so my code file is 2" high at the bottom which is very frustrating.

I don't perceive any intuitive way to re-configure the IDE to open up search results files to the code file tabs not the Output / ErrorList / Breakpoints tab set at the bottom.

Any ideas how to fix this?

To reset VS2010 settings go to tools -> Import Export setting -> reset setting

You don't have to reset settings, you should be able to float the window (if docked), and drag it to a different location.

@TheLearnedOne: I can move it manually each time, but it doesn't change the overall behavior.

It should stay the way that you change it, but it applies differently for each context, such as design-time, and run-time debugging.
