Open SSMS with Registered Servers view already open

Is there a startup option where we can set Registered Servers to be already open (and tree expanded) when we start SQL Server Management Studio?
It's the first place I go when I start SSMS, so I can connect where I need to be.  Once in a while it starts with Registered Servers open, but most often it does not.

    Hi @Lorne_McK

    Unfortunately there's no setting in relation to the SSMS Registered Servers window. My suggestion would be to try and re-dock the Registered Servers window in SSMS to see if that can fix it? I've tested it on my machine and it does open each time.

    You could try and re-register your servers as well, if that helps?

    Kind regards,
