Occasionally I have to test different logins with SQL Server on my development machine, so I'll use the test login on Management Studio.
After I do this, Management Studio remembers the test account and keeps it the default. So now, every time I launch Management Studio again, I have to change the login back to 'sa'.
See attached screen shot.
Even after I delete the testuser login, it still shows as the default Login, so it's obviously being cached somewhere.
I've searched the registry for my "testuser" account, but it doesn't seem to be saved in the registry. I've checked a few places to see if it is stored in a config file, but I couldn't find anything with a brief search.
Anyone know how to get rid of my 'testuser' account in the Login list or at least make it so that it is NOT the default login?
It isn't the end of the world, but it's really, really annoying. SQLLogin.jpg
