Window Panels in Visual Studio 2008 (Dang-it, stop it!)

There is a small feature that is just wasting little seconds that add up! I started using Visual Studio 2008 and started to notice it as soon as I started making new projects.

So, what is my problem, well I will tell you. The windows in my Visual Studio keep closing when ‘the pin is not pushed’. Let’s say I want to put a bunch of new controls onto the ‘deck’ from the toolbox. I have to first ‘push the pin’ and then start moving them over to the deck. I can’t just keep the ‘pin un-pushed’ and drag over the items. It should at least stay open for a second or two, and if it gets a user action to grab another item or at least put the mouse inside the window it shouldn’t move away so fast.

I have even tried grabbing really fast when the window closes and I can barely even get my mouse inside the window before it closes. I know it sounds like it was built for the keyboard operator more, but sometimes I get controlling and want to use my mouse.

One more problem with the windows, if you open a CSS file via the Solution Explorer, the window stays open for eternity. I often find my self having to Alt + Tab or open another window before it closes. This is a design flaw that I have had to deal with for a little while.

Dear Scott Guthrie:

Since you have some sway at Microsoft, can you please put this on a future release or even something in the options that you can set? I would love to have the option to either close quickly or close after 2 seconds so it lets the user open multiple items in the window. Please help. How about releasing a quick fix? That would be awesome!

Respectfully a .NET guru.

You can control how fast the window closes by looking under Tools/Options/Environment/General. Look for the checkbox and slider for "Animate environment tools"

Thanks for the advice, what about the Panel when you have a CSS page?  Any solution to that?

I have no idea what issue you are having with CSS files and the IDE windows. Can you elaborate?

The Window "Solution Explorer" Stays open when I open a .css file.  Happens in all my Visual Studio Installs. (MSDN License)

Hmm, I don't see that. I tried it on 2 different installs of VS 2008.

Hi there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could get a captcha plugin for my comment form? I'm using the same blog platform as yours and I'm having problems finding one? Thanks a lot!
