Globs of Tabs in SSMS

Warwick Rudd has cramped environs:

Working in SQL Server Management Studio is potentially an everyday occurrence for you! And having to work with many queries open at the same time is probably the norm.  Depending on the size of your screen that you may be working on, you are limited with the amount of screen real estate you can work in.

Personally, I get frustrated with having to continually go to the open query drop down window to see what queries I have open and be able to cycle through them to make my life easier and be more productive.

Warwick shows off one built-in way to solve this problem. When I was a database developer, I would have 40-50 tabs open at a time sometimes. I used Tabs Studio (commercial product but it’s not that expensive if you’re buying for yourself) to manage all of that.
