The SQL Server Management Studio design surface can be customized to your personal preference and work requirements.

The following are best practices for using the Management Studio workspace efficiently:

  • Close windows you do not expect to use right away.

  • If the tool you want is not visible, select it from the View menu.

  • Use Auto Hide to provide more room in the environment layout.

  • Set the At startup option to customize the default layout.
