To get this to always work, there are TWO places to set it:
1. On a registered server, select the "Connection Properties" tab, and set the color.
2. On the Object Explorer, if you click on connect and select a server, you will need to set it there on the "Connection Properties" tab also - it doesn't pick up the color from an associated registered server of the same name.

And the answer is "False" because? I would definatly say that my statusbar changes color... hence "True".

Please explain why the answer is False,

You can save the Visual Cue against the Registered server so when you connect it will be in the color you have defined.

I would say the answer is TRUE, if you disagree please elaborate.

Dear Dave62, WayneS,

Thank you both for drawing attention to this option, and for describing how to use it.

Hencefort, I promise to use a horrible pink color for all production servers, which should be out of bounds for me.

Best regards,

I answered TRUE, but reading and re-reading both question and answer, I do not understand why it's false. Please Hugo, help us to understand.

Ok, bad reading...
SSMS status bar NOT = Query window status bar.

I will not talk about the answers. It's clear for me: the main window status bar no, the query editor window yes.
It's a nice option I didn't know about. I'm going to use it. Maybe I will have lower rate of using inappropriate databases.
