    If this does this for all databases and servers then I'd say your SSMS instance is corrupt. You should repair the installation. If that fails then uninstall and reinstall it.

    I would try to uninstall the SSMS and reinstall it. Here is the link to get the latest version of SSMS.

    Hi anonymous user,

    Is it possible to view the system log first? And you can also run SSMS with –log parameter to generate error logs:

    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio 18\Common7\IDE\Ssms.exe" -log D:\log.txt.  

    These logs will provide more information. It is recommended to check to find the error content.

    Or you can try other versions of SSMS, such as 17.9.1, maybe other versions of SSMS you are able to run normally.
