Showing and Hiding Design Windows
When a design window is closed, it doesn't appear anywhere. There is a difference between being closed and being automatically hidden, as you'll learn shortly. To display a closed or hidden window, choose the corresponding menu item from the View menu.
For example, if the Properties window isn't displayed in your design environment, you can display it by choosing View, Properties Window (or by pressing its keyboard shortcut F4). Whenever you need a design window and can't find it, use the View menu to display it. To close a design window, click its Close button (the button on the right side of the title bar with an X), just as you would close an ordinary window.
