I'm using the new SSMS 18.0 or 18.1 and one thing extremely annoys me -

Upon pressing right click, the context menu is open.

I used to press the "up arrow"+"Return key" to pick the Refresh option.

The circularity isn't working anymore.

Is there anyway to change it?

Thanks!

    I just checked it, it is working for me with all default settings. SSMS 18.1. – Tony Hinkle Jun 20 at 14:54
  • I don't know what to say. I'm installing 17.9 again, to see how it's in there. – Roni Vered Jun 20 at 15:04
  • It does work for me on 17.9. On 18.0/18.1 it doesn't. What settings controls this ? – Roni Vered Jun 20 at 15:11
  • You mean "Down Arrow" to highlight refresh menu and then hit "enter"? If yes, that works for me in 18.1. – SqlWorldWide Jun 20 at 16:47

While I cannot reproduce this problem (i.e. I can right-click on any item in Object Explorer and press once to get to the bottom of the menu in SSMS 18.0 RTM), if the goal is to reduce the number of times you press a key, then I will suggest abandoning the desired approach (2 keys pressed: and then Enter ↲) in favor of simply doing a left-click and then pressing F5 once (i.e. "Refresh"), thereby saving one key-press every time 😺.

  • Thanks, but REFRESH is just one scenario that I use, also, when you right click a database and want to pick PROPERTIES, I use the same method, which doesn't work in 18.0/18.1 – Roni Vered Jun 21 at 7:05
