Go Home SSMS, You’re Drunk

I don’t even know where to start with this abomination. I was enjoying my new Logitech K480 Wireless Multi-Device Keyboard I got for Christmas, writing a query as I tend to do. I’ve been too lazy to flip the bit to make the function keys do function things, so when I hit F5 to run the query it executed whatever SSMS thinks the magnifying glass should do.

What fresh Hell is this?

It thinks it should launch Bing, in a browser, inside SSMS. What the hell is the use case for this? Perhaps this is an unholy mutation of Zawinski’s Law:

Every program attempts to expand until it can read mail browse the web. Those programs which cannot so expand are replaced by ones which can.

The ruined ship, trapped in the ice, is apt.
