It never occurred to me that the way SSMS handles tabs could be changed, and it’s just that the default settings suck. In this blog post, Brent Ozar shows us how to fix SSMS so that the tabs are actually usable and not annoying anymore.
I can’t love his post enough. It has really helped me become more efficient. I’m always flipping between tabs and can’t quickly find the one I need at some critical time, but now I can easily find it!
