OK – My SQL Server Management Studio environment is *really* messed up now

One of the advantages with placing the Management Studio for SQL Server in the Visual Studio shell is the ability to float the windows, pin them, and generally move them around. But sometimes you can get yourself into a situation where everything is pretty gummed up, and you can't quite find where the windows you need are. We've provided a simple solution that will set everything back to the way it was when it was shipped - just click the "Window" menu item in the top bar and then "Reset Window Layout". That will put everything back the way is was originally.
