First of all – I must confess that I was not aware of this feature till I noticed it today. At home, I have multiple monitors, but when I am traveling, I have single laptop along with me. It is often that when I am working with SQL Server I have to refer web for information on the subject I am working on. Let us understand about SSMS Browser in this blog post.
Recently I pressed CTRL+ALT+R and suddenly a web browser opened in SSMS. I later realize that I can also access the same from SSMS >> View >> Other Windows >> Web Browser.
Now user can open a web browser and New Query editor and split them vertically (Go to Windows and click on New Vertical Tab Groups) and have both side by side. Very near feature. I am personally going to use it again and again.
Here are my follow up questions for you-
- How many monitors do you have when you go to work?
- Do you use multiple monitors at home?
- Have you ever used SQL Server Management Studio Browser? If yes, would you please tell me real world scenario.
