Is there a way to organized databases in SQL Server much like the standard 'System Databases'.  Please see screen shot.  What I would like to do is create a sub folder called Sharepoint and place Sharepoint related databases in this folder.
Thanks in advance,

Tables within the database can be organized by assigning different schemas. Unfortunately, you can't do this with databases. I agree it would be very handy in severs with many databases.
