VB6 forms are not locked to the vb design window.

P: 1
Somehow I have separated all of my form windows and code windows from the main visual basic design window. These form windows do not appear as a subset of the design window. When I start vb and load a project I get a floating design bar with the file, edit, view, etc. commands and icons on one window (bar) and a series of separate windows for the forms and code (these forms may even appear on my second monitor). If I double click on a code window it fills the whole screen rather than filling the "design window". This is true for current projects as well as old projects. It also does not go away when I reboot.

Any suggestions?

Sounds as though you have turned on the "SDI Development Environment" option under Tools | Options | Advanced.
