in Management Studio 2008, how do you not display the object or owner name in front of the table.

ex. you open a database under object explorer and then navigate to table it displays dbo.tablename

how can I only display the Tablename without the .dbo (or table owner)?

thanks in Advance

As far as I know, there is no option or switch that would turn off the scheman name in the tables section of the object explorer tree.
