Visual WebDeveloper Express 2005 Help

Visual WebDeveloper Express 2005 Help

Just installed Visual Web Developer Express 2005 and when I was going through a learning video I accidently deleted the button insert from the tools menu AND no undo is available for deleting from the tools menu?

If anyone knows what I'm talking about how can I get the button back in the tools menu?

Do I have to reinstall the whole program again, which I don't want to do cause this whole asp.net stuff is horrible when it comes to reinstalling when all the rest of the framework is on my computer.

System Restore is our friend!
Restore your system to some time before the installation, then reinstall.

Et viola! HTH,

Since the times of Office 97, most of MS' products' toolbars and menu bars are 100% customizable; and MSWD2005 express isn't an exception.
Simply go to Tools/Customize... then go to the tab Commands and search for the command you lost. Once you have it, you may drag it to wherever you wish.
Alternatively, also from the Tools/Customize dialog, you may go to the Toolbars tab, select Menu Bar and then click Reset... it will ask for confirmation and then restore the main menu to the original configuration. Guess this will be easier than doing a system restore and this stuff, which could cause duplicated program files and loss of hard disk space.

Hoping be useful,

Thanks guys...
I was able to get my button tool back in the toolbox by right clicking in the toolbox and click restore toolbox.
