    How does my version of Visual Studio look like this?

    Why does my Visual Studio version look nothing like this picture?

    http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi...Studio2010.png

    My version does not have a toolbox on the left hand side or the visual display on top. I would like these things so I can easily drag and drop controls like buttons, labels etc but at the minute I am having to do everything by code. This kind of takes the whole aspect of visual away from the software. How do I make my version of visual studio look like the pic? I have tried view> toolbars > ... but none of the right screens come up. I am using Visual Studio Express

    Hey NKeuxmuis,

    It should all be there under View. For example, to bring up the control toolbox, whose controls you can drag and drop, go to View->ToolBox. Likewise, there are shortcut buttons through which you can open all these windows. They should be located around the top-right corner, and I can even see them in the very image you attached (including that pesky ToolBox)

    Don't resort to generating controls programmatically by yourself, lol. Just browse around and get a little bit more familiar with the environment, that's all. It's all there. :-)


    Regards,
    Mike
