Yes, the documentation does say CTRL + Shift + D however, as far as I can tell, this does nothing when using SSMS 2012. CTRL + D does change the output to grid - when the query is next executed. Also, if you go to the menu "Query-->Results To" it shows you the keyboard shortcut for "Results to Grid" which is "Ctrl+D"

When I use CTRL + Shift + D on its own in SSMS 2014, nothing happens because SSMS is waiting for the second key of a chord (in the status line at the bottom of the screen you get the message "(Ctrl+Shift+D) was pressed. Waiting for second key of chord...".

I believe there is a problem with the documentation and in this case the question was meant for 2014 instead of 2012 as the question states. I answered for 2012 and discovered I was wrong though CTRL+D is accurate in 2012 and does work.

In SSMS 2014, if I use CTRL+D, it will toggle me from text output to grid output. CTRL+Shift+D does nothing for me. I think this is another one of those opportunities for a connect item with MS.

Am I the only one who thought the question was worded a bit strange?

However you would not like to get the results back in a grid


Anyway, as stated above, the "correct" answer is clearly incorrect.

Tried on 2012, Ctrl+D toggles between text and grid output, Ctrl+Shift+D does nothing with me.

Lost one valuable point...

I always thought (and have found it to work in all version of SSMS I've used) CTRL+R toggles showing / hiding the results.

I also thought the wording was strange, in fact I thought the "not" was there by accident. Which was supported by the title of the question "Getting the grid back". So I choose for the least wrong option.
