Dear Mate,

Can you let me know why cannot i see any menu on my SSMS? I am on windows 7 as a normal user. but while i connect to the SQL Servers 2008R2, I connect through my Admin account. I did not have this problem with XP.

What happens if you press Alt+F keys? Please let us know.

Does not help. Please note that my menu is working but it is now shown. That means if I click on File, a transparent frame seen without any text on it. with gesture, if i clisk on any place of it, it will do as i clicked on menu. but i can not see what did i click on.

Seems more like a graphic problem then. You should reconsider help from IT Support.

Right Usman. It seems to me a user profile settings problem. As I log in to the machine as normal and open the SSMS as admin. if i open as normal ad a/c then it works fine.

Really sounds like a security issue, not SQL Server. It's absolutely not something I've seen before, nor have I heard this as a common complaint.

Hmmmm... Not sure. You should be able to see menus even in full screen mode. Try shift-alt-enter just in case see what that does.

If that doesn't work, I suspect there's something wrong with your install.

Shift+Alt+Enter does not work at all. I guess it could be related with windows group policy or access. because, if I open the SSMS with normanl user i can see the menu. Only when I connect as Administrator i cannot see the menu. I have contacted our IT support, they could not resolve it and said that it is a SQL issue.

If nothing else helps, try to delete the *.vssettings file(s) in the SQL Server Management Studio\\Settings under documents in your home directory.
