When using SSMS the query window is usually made up of the Editor on the top half and after you execute code Results are displayed on the bottom half. The problem with this is that if you need to modify the code in the Editor section the display is limited because the results pane takes up the bottom half of the window. You could resize the results section, but in this tip we look at a simple shortcut to show and hide the results pane.
The simple solution is to use the Ctrl+R shortcut to toggle between showing and hiding the results pane.
Here is a sample query window in SSMS with just the Editor section.
After we execute the code, half of the screen is now taken up by the Results pane.
If we just use Ctrl+R we can toggle between showing and hiding the results pane and therefore you can see more of the Editor section when you are using SQL Server Management Studio.
