SQL Server 2005 Tab Name Settings to Not Show DB Name

Posted on 2010-09-03

I'm running SQL Server 2005.  The tab names for active files start with the DB name  (which in my case is a fairly long name).  I'd like to have the tab display only the query name so I can more easily identify which query is on which tab.

Is there a setting that I can change to only display the query name?

Looked like it was going to do the trick but iIt appears that this option is not available in the version I'm running (or is buried somewhere else...I searched around a bit but couldn't find it.)

Thanks...I don't think I have the ability to assign aliases (access rights) but I'll ask around.
