Are you using SQL 2016 SSMS? Would you like to use native help? Now you can.

Are you using the SQL Server 2016 SSMS? Do you HATE the help experience when you press F1 and it opens the GOD DAMN webpage?

Did you know that you can change this horrible annoying behavior?


It’s a shockingly easy change.  Open SSMS. Click help, Set Help Preference, then change the default.ssms

See screenshot.

Now, when I did this I had to restart SSMS to get the change to actually do anything.  Half the time help hangs when I open it, but I’m on the fast train for Windows 10 so it might be that.

Best blog post ever!
