Docking targets are hands-down her all-time favorite feature that she tested. Oh, the fun she would have opening bugs like "Tool Window client area resizes to a negative size after redocking to same location 100-plus times." (Yes, the bug was fixed.)
When you drag a tool window over a docking target, you'll get a preview, as you see in the next screen shot.

But, let's have a little fun ... She has no idea how the tool window tab group shown next could be useful, but maybe if it were resized to fit a secondary monitor ...

Can you tell she enjoyed being a tester?

Happy Programming! =)
