Avoid unnecessary window switching


If you installed Books Online with Visual InterDev, you know that they're a valuable resource. However, if you reference the information while working on a project, you may get tired of switching back and forth between documentation and your code. If you'd like to be able to see the documentation and your code at the same time, just follow these few simple steps. Pull down the tools and select the Options... menu item. Next, select the Workspace tab from the Options dialog. Under Docking views, select the InfoViewer Topic option, then click OK. The next time you select an InfoViewer Topic, the results will be displayed in their own window. You can either dock the window as part of your workspace or just let it float. When you're not using the InfoViewer window, just click the close button to get rid of it. The next time you choose an InfoViewer topic, the window will reappear right where you left it.
