When I open procedures in SQL management studio  from object explorer, default file name given to it is SQLQueryNNN.sql. i am using SQL 2008 R2. Is there any options to change in management studio or anywhere else to use procedure name as default file name?

No. because when you are opening a stored procedure in SSMS you can displaying far more than just the contents of the Stored Procedure, this is true of any object in SQL, be it a User Defined Function, a table, a View, whatever.  That is why it opens as a script to ALTER the Stored Procedure when you click on Modify.

I don' t have problem with script content, what I would like that tab that opens  has name of the object, not SQLSquery1.sql, SQLQuery2.sql etc. I know it will change it when I save it into file, but I don't want additional clicks and typing. I thought may be there are some settings to change it.

No.  SSMS does not provide that functionality.

I am sorry you did not like the answer, but sometimes the correct answer is you cannot do that.

I am ok with NO as answer and it was accepted. System does not allow me to close question without posting some comments, I have none.

And that is fine, I was referring to the "B" grade.

Then I am afraid you do need to re-read the EE Guidelines. Specifically:
The correct answer to some questions is "You can't do that."
Sometimes, you will get an answer that isn't what you want to read, but it still may be the correct answer, and you should award points to the Expert that gave you that answer.
