How To Remove The Current Line Highlight In SSMS 2016

You’ll notice there is a border around the current line in SSMS. This can be disabled ( by unchecking the option ). Here’s how.

From Management Studio go to Toos, Options, and selecting the ‘General’ option.

Next simply uncheck the option for ‘Highlight current line’. Click ‘Ok’ and you’re done.

  1. I don’t like the outline they have now. I liked the old way of highlighting the current line by changing the background color.

  2. I agree. To be honest I don’t like any of their built-in SSMS theme capabilities. It’s really awful. They should have dozens of theme options with a list of available themes to choose from like any other editor on the planet, and not something you need to configure or go hunt down on the web. Point and click.
