Description Andrew 2013-12-03 13:12:09 UTC
I work with "Standard" toolbar hidden to save screen real estate. Each time I launch VS, the toolbar gets visible, so I have to hide it manually. 

I started noticing this behavior since a big Xamarin update approx. last February.

Steps to reproduce:
1) launch VS 2010, hide "Standard" toolbar (keep both Xamarin's visible -- not sure it's important)
2) exit VS
3) launch it again
4) see the toolbar unhidden

We have checked this issue with:

VS 2010
Windows 8
MTVS 1.8.365
MFA 4.10.01073

we are not able to reproduce this issue, steps we have followed for this issue:

1. Open VS 2010
2. Create any android application or iOS application
3. Auto hide the Toolbox
4. Quit VS 
5. Relaunch the VS and open the project

Observe that Toolbar is hidden

Could you please provide us some screencast?  So that we can reproduce this issue.

The step #3 in your reproduce scenario is wrong.

The problem is not with the "Toolbox" side panel, as displayed in your screencast, but with the "Standard" toolbar -- the toolbar that appears right under the menu line and contains buttons like "save", "cut", "copy", "paste" etc.

Please retest.

Here's my screencast: http://www.screencast.com/t/twTVIBftZQ

Though I wasn't able to reproduce this issue on a new empty project, it seems to exist for one my solution only (just for sure I erased *.suo file as well as solution-specific settings file, but it didn't helped)

@Andrew thanks for correcting me.

We are also not able to reproduce this issue with new project. Could yo please attach your project here?
So we can reproduce this issue at our end.
