Visual Studio 2005: Dock the Find and Replace Window

Posted May 24, 2005 by MickeyMouse in Windows

If you are having difficulty docking VS 2005’s find and replace window, you need the following easy fix.

When I first started playing with VS 2005, I could not figure out how to get the find and replace window to dock. The following steps work and can be used with all the tools windows in VS.

    1. Right-click on the Find and Replace(or other tool) window.
    2. Select Dockable.
    3. To make it floating again, repeat this process.


    To move a dockable window without it snapping into place, press CTRL while dragging it.
