I have configured SSMS to display results to a separate pane which works fine when I create new queries using the "New Query" button.

However, when I right click on a table and click SELECT TOP 1000 Rows it displays the result in the "old style" window with code at the top and results at the bottom.

Is there something I have missed or is this a feature?

I am using Management Studio 17.9.1

    Don’t use the SELECT TOP 1000 rows feature then. With IntelliSense you could type out the command just as quickly and get the behaviour you desire. – Randolph West Feb 22 at 10:34
  • SMSS 16.something on my machine does the same thing, FWIW – Kevin3NF Feb 22 at 13:20
