SQL Server Management Studio

Hopefully you know that SSMS is a separate install from the main SQL Server install. You can find the binaries from Microsoft (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sql/ssms/download-sql-server-management-studio-ssms) Using SSMS version 18.2, whilst playing around with the options I noticed a dark theme was available, easy to say I got a little excited, then I didn’t.

Once activated I was looking forward to using it as I would when using the dark theme in Visual Studio. I started a couple of queries and it wasn’t really all dark. I call it half dark theme.

So I changed the settings for  grid results > fonts and colours to the below.

Output shown below. Do you prefer it?

I think I might stick to the blue theme 😉
