When I open the Find in Files dialog (by pressing ctrl+shift+f) is is way too big.

It looks like its exactly as wide or slightly wider then the screen width. But it pops up in the middle of my screen so usually when I need to switch the find path (from a fix location to entire solution) I can't click the arrow. Its really annoying

How do I fix that? I tried reducing the width and closing VS but after opening I still get the same width problem

Have you tried docking the window to one side? Alternatively, you could just reset the VS IDE settings. – user3463 Jan 23 '11 at 22:37
@Randolph: Docking doesnt help. The window is either too large or short enough that i cant click find (or sometimes check off settings). I need it floating. – acidzombie24 Feb 14 '11 at 14:12

Get the PPT VS extension. It features a Chrome Browser style find box... Plus the extension adds a number of improvements like Ctrl Click "Goto Definition" and a combined Solution explorer/Class View Toolbox called Solution Navigator.
