    Resolved [RESOLVED] Lost Project Explorer

    My fat fingers closed Project Explorer and I've not yet been able to find a way to restore the Project Explorer.

    Is there an interface for this?
    If so, what?

    Or, do I have to delete a registry key?
    If so, which?

    Open vb6. open a new form. Press Ctrl + R

    Click on the menu View. You will see the Project Explorer. Right next to it is the shortcut key That's how I started remembering them... Search the web and see if you get the list of shortcut keys in vb6....

    Unfortunately, Project Explorer is missing from the VIEW meni.
    So, I likely need to delete/modify a registry key, but which one?

    No you don't need to amend anything in the registry...

    Just follow these steps....

    Open VB6
    Open New Form
    Right Click on the menu blank area (see small red arrow in picture)
    Click on Customize

    You will be presented a Customize window

    Under the Toolbars tab, select Menu Bar and click on the button Reset...

    That will bring the menu bar back to normal...

    Re: Lost Project Explorer

    I thank Siddharth Rout but his steps did not work for me. After some twiddling I got back Project Explorer through Tools > Options > Docking > uncheck Project Explorer. However this meant it did not dock properly. But at least I got it back. Until I rechecked Project Explorer in the Tools > Options > Docking menu at which point it disappeared again. Sigh.
