SQLServer v2005, Environment Layout, tab titles too long

I am using SQLServer v2005. When I open a database object in Tabbed or MDI view there is a long title for top of the tab/window. It is prefixed by my SQLServer's name, which is Dell340_C9WBL1S. So every tab/window has that on it and makes reading the title painful.

When I fire up the SQLServer Maagment Studio, it does not ask me for either 'local' (like v7 did), just the actual SQL server name(s) on my network

Anyway to get rid of that server id as a prefixe to a tab or MDI window??

You'll have get used to it. The structure of that title in the tab is to your beneffit as you want to make sure that you are on the right server and on the right database. Believe me, you need that. It is unfortunate that your server has such a long name but again, who ever installed the SQL server chose that.

When you are asked for your server name you can always type . for your local instance.
