Pinned Tab – SSMS Efficiency Tip – SQL in Sixty Seconds #121

This is a follow up of my earlier blog which got instant popular Split Screen for SSMS Efficiency – SQL in Sixty Seconds #120. Lots of people asked me to share the SSMS efficiency tip so I have shared the same in this blog post. Today’s topic is the pinned tab in SSMS for efficiency. I use this tip very frequently with my clients during the Comprehensive Database Performance Health Check.

Let us assume that you have been working for hours on SSMS and there are so many different tabs you have open. Now it is quite possible that one or two of the tabs in your SSMS are very important tabs for you as those are the tabs that you need to frequent to work on the other tabs. Often people spend up to minutes of the time to relocate their important tabs in SSMS.

The solution for this one is pretty simple if you use the pinned tab. I have explained the same in this very short SQL in the Sixty Seconds.

Here are a few associated blog posts which you may find interesting.
