What is Quick Launch in Management Studio?

Have you noticed an input box called Quick Launch at top-right corner of the Management Studio? Have you used it? Do you know that why it has been given?

This input box allows us to search IDE specific options, templates and menus and open them without going through standard menu items. For example, if I want to change the font and size of the font, I have to go through Tools -> Options -> Environment -> Font and Colors. But Quick Launch allows us to open it quickly without going through menu items.

If you click on it (Shortcut is Ctrl + Q), and type @, then it shows possible items that can be searched;

If you type @opt, then it allows use to search a specific menu under options;

Once searched, it displays the result. The required item can be opened by clicking it;

As you see, this can be used for opening many items related to IDE without going through multiple steps.
