How To: Display unicode characters in Grid Results (SQL Server Management Studio – SSMS)

Is SSMS not displaying unicode characters?
You might want to change the default font to: ‘Arial Unicode MS

In SSMS, go to:
Tools‘ -> ‘Options‘ -> ‘Environment‘ -> ‘Fonts and Colors‘ -> Select ‘Grid Results’

Here you’re able to change fonts for many windows (including ‘Grid Results’).
Also, you can click ‘Use Defaults‘ to (re-)set all settings to default values.
