     If you have worked with fullscreen DirectX, then you'll know that when you end your program, the VB IDE is all messed up, in the wrong place of the screen etc, and you have to minimize then restore it to get it back to it's original state. I got tired sick of having to do this so I created this simple little add-in which will detect when your program ends and automatically restore the IDE to the state it was in before. To use it, simply compile and place in your main VB program folder (usually: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\VB98\), then open VB again, goto Add-Ins > Add-In Manager, and double click on "Ed's Restore IDE" to load it for the first time and you're done!

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
