Open powershell with administrator... run below commands

Example :

Below command retrieves information about all the mailbox databases in the Exchange organization, including the mailbox databases that reside on computers running Exchange 2013 and earlier versions of Exchange

Get-MailboxDatabase -IncludePreExchange2013

Example :

Below command retrieves information about MailboxDatabase01 on Server01. This example also retrieves the status information, and pipes the output to the Format-List cmdlet so that you can view all the information about the mailbox database.

Get-MailboxDatabase -Identity MailboxDatabase01 -Server Server01 -Status | Format-List

Simple 1 liner command
Get-Mailbox | Sort database, name | Format-Table name, database

And if you want to save result in csv or txt file then

Get-Mailbox | Sort database, name | Format-Table name, database > C:\a.csv
