Default Default settings for Tool Bar, Properties, etc.

Somehow I have messed up the way VB opens and can't seem to figure out how to reset it to the default settings. When I open the Toolbox, it doesn't have the pushpin anchor available anymore and is on the right side of the screen instead of the left. The properties box is also 'loose'. I have uninstalled and reinstalled VB and that didn't work.

Thanks in advance for any help you can give.

Hello KKeesling,

I am using VB2005 Express Edition. I had the same issue with the toolbox. I closed it and could not figure out how to open again. I ended up finding a selection for Resetting Defaults which put everything back to the way it was. Unfortunately I am at work and do not have access to the application at the moment and can't remember exactly where it was. I will check when I get home tonight and post what I found.
