Does anyone know of a way of changing the window size on the Query Designer in SSMS 2005?  I would like it to almost take up the full screen and NOT have to manually expand it every time I open it via a Right-Click.  i was thinking about searching through the .ini files, but wanted to check here first.

    In Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio 2005?  I am familiar with the pins in other apps, i.e. Visual Studio.  Not sure where to find them in SSMS 2005

    Their use is identical.  The pins are in the top right of each window
