Has anyone seen this issue. I am using SSMS 2008 (x64 Version 10.0.5768.0) on Win 2008 R2 machine. Management studio crashed and then when I launch it, it doesn't show Object Explorer even when I hit F8 or select it from View. The only time it works is when I select full screen.

Nevermind.. I just fixed it... something might have been corrupt in my local profile setting. Renamed the SQL folder in Local and Roaming of App folder and it is working now.
