Visual Studio 2010 \ 2012 Windows

I have two monitors at Work and in VS 2010 \ 2012 I use floating windows such as the Error List, Bookmarks, Breakpoints etc and dock them all together on the second monitor, it works fine there. When I work from home I remote into a VPN that does not allow me to use two monitors together. In that situation I have to close the floating windows in order to view the Editor window.

When I go back to work I know I am able to hold CTRL and double click on the window name that I need to place it back in it's last configuration but I have to do that one at a time. Is there a way to dock all the floating windows like I want them, give the entire configuration a name and have all floating windows show back up all at once instead of one a a time?  

Please help me Obi-Wan Kenobi, you are my only hope.

The following article describes how you can export a visual studio settings file which should save all you window layouts. So if you have your ide set up how you want to at work you can then save this configuration to a file, which can be imported everytime you need to reset the settings after using them at home. You could even save a home configuration so you can quickly move between the 2 configurations.
The option to export a settings file is available on the Tools menu and is named 'Import and Export settings'.
