Fix: SSMS 2012 opening Debug window when pressing F5

During my evaluation of SQL Server 2014, I happened to face a problem, when I hit the F5 key in the Object Explorer, the SSMS was starting the Debug action instead of Refresh.
Usually most of them will be happy for F5=Refresh and F5=Query Execution.

Here is the procedure to Re-assign F5 key to refresh action in SQL Server Management Studio.

  1. Open Management Studio
  2. Go to Tools >> Options

  3. Expand Environment >> Keyboard >> Keyboard

  4. In the “Show commands containing:”, type “View.Refresh” and here you can observe that “Shortcuts for selected command:” will be grayed out

  5. Now choose “Global” in the “Use new shortcut in:” and press F5 button in “Press shortcut keys:”

  6. Click Assign
  7. Click Ok
