How to restore Search box in Test Explorer of Visual Studio

Every so often when launching Visual Studio 2015, I have an issue where the Test Explorer doesn’t display its Search box.

Restarting Visual Studio fixes this, but for anything but small projects, closing and reopening the Solution is a time waster.

Perhaps this is obvious, but you can fix this quickly without restarting by just dragging the Test Explorer to undock it.

After that just dock it again, problem fixed, no restart required.
