Migrating from Query Analyzer to SQL Server Management Studio

Users familiar with Query Analyzer may choose to configure Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio to behave as much like Query Analyzer as possible.


To configure SQL Server Management Studio as closely as possible to Query Analyzer

  1. Use the Microsoft SQL Server 2000 keyboard scheme. To change the keyboard scheme, on the Tools menu, click Options, and then select the desired keyboard scheme on the Environment, Keyboard page.

  2. Close all windows except Object Explorer and Query Editor.

  3. Press F1 for Help about text selected in Query Analyzer, instead of SHIFT+F1.
