Stupid question but I accidentally moved object explorer from it's original default position on SSMS. By default, object explorer is to the left, and query window is to the right. Now object explorer seems to have been "undocked" and query window occupies the screen from left to right, such that if I open a new query it opens "behind" object explorer. How do I restore the original "default" view in SSMS?

Not a stupid question at all!

Just grab the Object Explorer windows and drag it until a blue cross appears. Continue dragging the window and point your mouse at the different points of the cross. This will display a greenish highlight within SSMS to show where the window will dock. When you have the one you want, let go of the mouse button.

The blue cross looks like the one in the image below...although that is not the object explorer window being docked (it's just a picture I found by Googling)

    Just open SQL server management studio. On the menu bar, select Window, then Reset Window Layout. This will place object explorer to its original position. But bear in mind that, this will reset all your settings to the default if you have any!!!

    You can't say this as a stupid qurstion, may be there are many other users who faced this type of problem and didn't find a solution for this.....
    Main thing is to have gutts to post it wether it may be a stupid question for others or not...... Keep posting question Wink
    For solution you can just dragged the window on the lift side of the window until a blue border appears on the screen.... It will works Wink

    Hi All,

    1) Right Click on object explorer
    2) Now you can see an option called "Dock"
    3) Select "Dock"

    By this object explorer comes to normal position as earlier. Thank You.Hehe

    Regards,
    Kalyan

    If you're like me, you're looking for the object explorer tree on the left.
    When you double click a query, this doesn't open by default.

    Click
    File-->Connect Object Explorer

    You'll have to authenticate. The next time you open it, the object explorer may be open but it won't show the details. You'll have to click "connect" and authenticate.
