SQL Server 2005/2008: Disable Management Studio’s Splash Screen

If you have grown tired of having to view the splash screen each and every time you open the SQL Server Management Studio, you can use a simple command line switch in your shortcut to bypass the annoyance.

1. Right-click on the desktop.

2. Click New and select Shortcut.

3. Click the Browse button and go to the Sqlwb executable (“C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Tools\Binn\VSShell\Common7\IDE\Sqlwb.exe”).

4. After the full path and the end quotes, add one space and type in -nosplash.

5. Click Next.

6. Type a name for the shortcut.

7. Click Finish.
