Is there some way to restore the Registered Server window in SSMS ?

I don't mean restoring the individual server details, rather I mean the actual window

I've tried clicking the menu item "View \ Registered Servers" and the keyboard short-cut CTRL + ALT + G, but neither displays the window

You might try going to menu Window \ Reset Window Layout. I have had to do that on a few computers that would not bring up the Registered Services window.

Excellent, that worked a treat. Many thanks as this has been bugging me for a long while :-) – SteveC Feb 14 '12 at 19:01
