Closing a query tab in SSMS can take a very long time and hang the app
When I open new query tabs (e.g. by right-clicking a server in the registered servers or the object explorer and choosing "New Query"), it can take a few seconds for the new tab to appear and connect - that's acceptable, I understand opening a connection can take a short while.
However, why does it take up to 10 seconds from clicking the x on the query tab until it's either closed or the "save changes" prompt appears? It can be very frustrating, because the entire app freezes during that time, and this can also prevent the computer from restarting.
I use SSMS 18.1 but I also had the same issue in SSMS 17.x.
I have the same issue. I would love to see this resolved as it is actually hanging long enough to hurt my productivity... thats pretty bad.
It seems to take longer to close the longer the query tab has been open. Hope that helps someone figure out this bug.
