Something Useful

I just discovered a simple and useful little trick to make navigating around a “Design” tab in Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio a bit easier. The problem for me is that I have had some trouble finding a good mouse that has two scroll wheels, one for horizontal scrolling and one for vertical scrolling, so I end up having to use the scroll bar across the bottom of a particular window area if I want to see what is to the right or left of the viewing area.

Well, in MS SQL Management Studio, holding the “control” key while using the scroll wheel scrolls the view left or right! So far I have found this only works is MS SQL Management Studio, and sadly not in Eclipse, so the search for a better mouse continues; but this is a good way to navigate around in the mean time.
