How to change window layout in vs2005?

Recommended Posts

The first time the vs2005 IDE is run the user is given a chance to set the default layout. I rarely use anything but C++ so I chose that as my default layout. But only recently I've come to appreciate some features available in other layouts. I especially hate searching the output window for error messages. Pressing F4 repeatedly to jump over errors is counter-intuitive in my opinion as there are times when the programmer knows THE error message that is the source of all others. I saw that window in a .NET language-related layout the other day - which btw I can't remember its name - with all those errors sorted in a clean table and I thought to myself, well that's exactly what I'm looking for. I was wondering if anyone knows how to add that to the IDE, once you've chosen C++ as the default layout. Thanks in advance.
