8. The Visual Basic Editor, Part I > 8.5. Arranging Windows

Arranging Windows

If you need more space for writing code, you can close the Properties window, the Project window, and the Immediate window. On the other hand, if you are fortunate enough to have a large monitor, then you can split your screen as shown in Figure 8-6 in order to see the Access VBA IDE and the corresponding Access database at the same time. In some cases (but not all), you can trace through each line of your code and watch the results in the database! (You can toggle between Access and the IDE using the Alt+F11 function key combination.)

Docking

Many of the windows in the IDE (including the Project, Properties, and Immediate windows) can be in one of two states: docked or floating. This state can be set using the Docking tab on the Options dialog box, which is shown in Figure 8-7.
