In SQL Server Management Studio:

Double Click your server to open the Object Explorer
Right Click and select Properties
On the General Tab - The server name is the instance name.

I forgot, you can also run a SQL query from within the Management Studio with this and it will populate the instance name as the result:

select @@ServerName
