Pinning

Pinning refers to the process of making a window stick in the open position. It is called pinning in reference to the visual cue you use to perform the act: a pushpin. Pinning is a key concept because you sometimes want full-screen real estate for writing code or designing a form. In this case, you should unpin (auto hide) the various extraneous windows in your IDE. Figure 2.30 shows the mouse cursor over the pin of the Solution Explorer window.
