Anyone else hate when you right-click on SQL Server Enterprise Manager, “Help Topics” is where “Close” should be.  I don't know how many time I have freaking open up SQL Help when I really just wanted to close the damn thing!  If you have Yukon installed, does it do the same thing?

Yes! I get caught by this all of the time, and no, the Yukon Workbench has NO such annoyance.

I HATE THAT! I hit "Help Topics" every time I want to close SQL. It's really becoming quite a bother!

That's just the Microsoft Basic Set of Assumptions at work. They think whenever you want to close a program, there's something wrong with you, and therefore you need help. It's the same reason why when you try to kill a process using the Task Manager, you get a lengthy pause, followed by an argument in favor of allowing the process to live. It's the same reason why the T-SQL 'kill' command is not really a kill command at all, just a polite request -- which as often as not the server proceeds to ignore. The Unix 'kill' command is better than a can of Raid. Just add the "-9" -- that's the 'dammit!' option -- and the process dies every time. It might clobber your session, but it figures you know what you're doing. Microsoft presumes otherwise.

That is a "clean" version of what I yell out loud every time I open "Help Topics" when try to close SQL Server windows.
