I can no longer resize the pane inside the Git Changes view.

Jack Liu 1 Reputation point

I recently did clean install of Windows 11. After install the VS 2022 (Microsoft Visual Studio Professional 2022 (64-bit) - LTSC 17.4), I have noticed that I can no longer resize the pane inside the Git Changes view anymore.

The problem is that the "Staged Changes" pane takes the majority of the view and I want to enlarge the "Changes" pane so I can see more; but it doesn't seem to work. If I hover the mouse between the two panes, I do see a line showing up but I cannot drag it. Attached screenshot.


I am pretty sure I used to be able to resize it (at least with VS 2019) , so not sure if something is wrong or I just forgot how to.
Has anyone experienced the same problem, and if so, is there a way to fix it? I've trying a couple of things including resetting the window layout but does not seem to work.

    Hi @Jack Liu ,

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A!

    I tested on VS2019 and VS2022, couldn’t drag the lines to resize the pane.
    You can collapse the “Staged Changes” pane to enlarge the “Changes” pane. Or I drag the Properties window down.
