    Starting off with SQL basics questions

    Hey guys, I am starting study SQL from here:

    SQL Tutorial - Databases

    I have installed SQL Server but stuck at :
    Code:
    SQL - Creating a Database
    
    Creating a database inside of SQL Express has its advantages. After launching Microsoft's SQL Server Management Studio Express application, simply right-clicking on the Databases folder of the Object Explorer gives you the option to create a New Database. After selecting the New Database... option, name your database "MyDatabase" and press "OK".
    First, si there supposed to be an icon for the server on my desktop? If so, none on my desktop. I looked in All Programs and am not seeing "Microsoft's SQL Server Management Studio Express"? Help please?

    You may have to download the maintenance tool separately. Although I thought it was in the sqlexpress download.

    I did not do these listed in the Instructions, think this has anything to do with it?:

    Step 1: Download and install Microsoft .Net Framework 3.5 SP1.

    Step 2 Download and install Windows Installer 4.5.
    .
    Step 3 Download and install Windows PowerShell 1.0.

    SQL Server 2008 R2 Express
    32-bit Database and Management Tools


    and looks like it works!
