There has been many a blog post out there that shows you some of the great ways you can customize the look and feel of your management studio windows. One of my favorite recently published ones is from the great people at Brent Ozar Unlimited (Brent himself in this case) here.
There is even many a blog post out there about how you can export your settings from one and import it to another here.
All of the blog posts I’ve read however have one problem for me. They seem very “clicky”, as in a lot of clicking of the mouse (or keyboard shortcuts) has to happen every time you want to import your settings and I thought there has to be a more programatic way.
After all, many of us espouse to the DRY (Don’t Repeat Yourself) technique when coding. Why wouldn’t we want to trim time and energy off of something as basic as a settings import.
And Josh has that solution.
