Most likely you haven't installed it or your installation failed. If you are using SQL express edition, use the links I've suggested above. If not, make sure you install them from your installation CD.
Unless you inadvertenly deleted the menu links, then use Aneesh suggestion.

That is because you have installed SQL Server Express and have not installed SQL Server Management Studio Express.  Until you install it there is not a lot you can click on.
