The Microsoft Script Editor environment has two types of windows
- Tab-link several windows.
- Dock tool windows to an edge of the development environment.
- Minimize tool windows along any edge of the development environment.
- Tile document windows.
For more information on the differences between tool and document windows, see Window Types.
To tab-dock windows
- For a tool window, click Dockable on the Window menu and then, using the pointer, drag the window over the title bar of the destination tool window.
- When you see a superimposed outline of the window with a tab, release the mouse button to place the window.
Note The position of the mouse pointer determines where the window will be placed, not the edges of the window.
Tip To move a dockable window without snapping it into place, press CTRL while dragging it to the location you desire.
To dock or hide tool windows
- Click Dockable on the Window menu, and then drag the window toward an edge of the development environment window until you see a superimposed outline in the location you want.
Note The position of the mouse pointer, not the edges of the window, determines where the window will be placed.
- Right-click the window and click Auto Hide. The window will reappear when your cursor is near the edge of the development environment window.
If you want to view more than one document at a time while editing code, you can tile documents together.
To tile document windows
- In Tabbed Documents mode, select a tab and drag it below or above the current document tile. A rectangular outline appears in the location that the new document tile will be placed, based on the position of the cursor.
- In MDI mode, click Tile Windows on the Window menu.
