I am often working in Visual Studio in Controllers that have a large amount of code in them and want to look at code from multiple parts of the file. Using the split screen view is not sufficient. The following is how I maximize my monitor space to get the best experience with the fewest distractions.
1. Select the tab you are working with.
2. Select Window -> New Window
3. Select Window -> New Vertical Tab Group
4. Press Shift – Alt – Enter to switch to full screen mode.
