SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) is part of SQL DBAs life. I use it while doing the presentation. If you are sitting in a big room like below, then the guy sitting in the last row may not be able to see it properly. As a conference speaker and trainer, it is very critical for me to make sure that everyone in the room understand and learn from me. Let us learn in this blog post how to increase the SSMS Grid Font Size?
In SQL Server 2012 onwards, I was relieved to see setting using which I can adjust zoom of the “Text Editor” and “Text Results” windows very easily.
Now, if the results are very wide then showing them in text is not an option and I have to use grid mode. I didn’t find any easy way to change the font of the grid at the run time.
There is still the old way to change it. From the Tools –> Options –> Fonts and Colors we can change fonts for many windows. There is a drop down ‘Show Settings for’ where we can change font for text in many areas. We need to choose “Grid Results” there.
This setting change would need a restart of SSMS.
Have you used this setting? Do you know how to change font of object explorer?
