Search and Execute Actions Using Quick Launch

| Comments

One of my favorite features in SSMS 2016 is Quick Launch. If you focus in the Quick Launch box in the top right corner, you can start typing and it’ll show you the list of matching options and menus.

You can also search in specific categories by prefixing the search string with @.
