Horizontal and Vertical Tab Groups in SSMS

When you right click on the query window tab in SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS), if you have two or more tabs open, you will get the option to choose between 'New Horizontal Tab Group' or 'New Vertical Tab Group'.

tab_right_click_new_tab_group

The same options are shown in Window menu:

window_new_tab_group

'New Horizontal Tab Group' will look like this:

new_horizontal_tab_group

'New Vertical Tab Group' will look like this:

new_verticall_tab_group

To go back to normal view, drag the tab to another group. Another way to do the same is to right click on the tab and choose 'Move to Previous Tab Group' or 'Move to Next Tab Group':

move_to_next_tab_group

You can choose 'Move to Previous Tab Group' or 'Move to Next Tab Group' from the Window menu:

move_to_next_tab_group_window_menu
