Disabling document floating on tab double click in Visual Studio 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: — Sergey Vlasov @ 1:31 pm

I was asked to “disable change float (undock) tab on mouse double click”. I added this feature the last summer, copying the default Visual Studio 2010 behavior. But accidental double click on a tab is a problem (e.g. read Turn off double-click undock in VS2010, How To Disable Floating Windows? and How to disable floating tabs in Visual Studio 2010).

I’m planning to disable floating on double click in the next Tabs Studio release. For those who find this feature useful, I can reintroduce it as a separate add-in. Please, comment if you feel pro or against this feature.


  1. I often double-click tab by mistake and end up with floating window. It would be great if such behaviour would be disabled!

  2. I would like to disable this behavior as well. I’m still double clicking by mistake or forgetting/not realizing the VS window already has focus and I only need to click once to view.

    • Lee,
      Thank you for the feedback! Floating on double click is disabled by default starting from Tabs Studio v2.3.0.
