SSMS Quick ways to get data

Hi
In SSMS are there quick ways to get data from tables using right clicks, drag and drop and the like?
I have a number of tables of around a hundred thousand records that I need quick access to.

As mentioned above, simply Right Click your table and Choose Select Top 1000 Rows(configurable with options)

>> I have a number of tables of around a hundred thousand records that I need quick access to.

Can you clarify more on what kind of quick access you would be performing so that we can suggest better.

Please clarify, there is a query designer.

What are you trying to do/end up with.

Which SQL version?

If you ow the query, you could use powershell, bcp to export ......

How much data/what are you trying to end up with?
