Shortcut to Show and Hide Azure Data Studio Results Pane

January 6, 2020

On December 29th I saw a tweet with #sqlhelp hashtag from Derik Hammer (Blog|Twitter).

I know CTRL+R works for the same when using SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS). That hotkey did not work in Azure Data Studio (ADS). Knowing how brilliant technologists Derik is, I realized that a standard google search will not work.

I know ADS is an open-source project. Someone might have requested this feature already. Sure enough, I landed into Results Panel – show / hide #261 and Feature request: Shortcut for hiding query results #44. Reading the notes on the first post I found ‘ The default shortcut ‘Shift+Win+R’ toggle both panes (Result and Messages).

Result and Messages pane is hidden.

Testing confirmed Shift+Win+R will show and hide result pane.

Using Shift+Win+R will bring up Result and Messages pane.

You can see all default key bindings by navigating to File > Preferences > Keyboard shortcuts or by using shortcut Ctrl+K Ctrl+S.

If you want to use the same hotkey as SSMS (Ctrl+r) or any other combination you can edit the default. To create your own hotkey navigate to File > Preferences > Keyboard Shortcuts, in the search area at the top, enter the keyword to search the command. Once you find the command, click the edit icon (pencil) to the lest of this item and enter your keybinding.
