SQL Server Helper - Tip of the Day

SQL Server 2012 Management Studio offers users two keyboard schemes.  By default, it uses the SQL Server 2012 scheme, with keyboard shortcuts based on Microsoft Visual Studio 2010.  Management Studio also offers a keyboard scheme similar to the standard scheme from SQL Server 2008 R2.  To change the keyboard scheme or add additional keyboard shortcuts, on the Tools menu, click Options.  Select the desired keyboard scheme on the Environment, Keyboard page.
