Join Walt Ritscher for an in-depth discussion in this video Entering full-screen mode, part of Visual Studio 2015 Essential Training: 02 Getting Comfortable with the IDE.
- I'll show you a simple full screen feature…that maximizes your editing space…by hiding all the docked and floating windows.…I've been working on this project for some time,…and I've got a gazillion windows and tabbed editors open.…Right now, I'm working on this NameGenerator.cs file,…but it's hard to see much code because the window is small.…That's because I have so many tool windows docked.…I've got the Server Explorer, and the Data Sources window…docked the to the left side of the screen.…The Output window's docked at the bottom of the screen.…And I have several windows docked…to the right side of the screen.…
Also I'm losing some space at the top of the screen…because I have multiple toolbars open.…Now, of course, I can drag the sizers…to change the width of the docked windows.…Or I can click the Auto Hide button.…And I can also close some of these toolbars…at the top of the screen.…But that jumbles my current window arrangements,…which I might prefer for working on other tasks.…Which means, I'd have to recreate the arrangement later.…
