If you highlight the name of an object in a query window in SQL Management Studio and press Alt+F1 you instantly get a set of results showing almost everything you could want to know about the object: columns, parameters, datatypes, constraints, indexes, storage details. This works on your own tables etc. not just system objects. Forget scrolling around in the Object Explorer.
What’s actually happening is that the system stored procedure sp_help is being executed (with the highlighted text as the parameter value) because sp_help is bound to the keyboard shortcut Alt+F1. You can see and customise these query shortcuts in the Environment / Keyboard part of the Options dialogue (menu Tools / Options).
Really obvious once you know it’s there, but it hasn’t been very well publicised!
