I am trying to install sql server on a W8 laptop. The installation seemed to go okay, but I have not been able to find management tools in the w8 "start" menu. I'm new to W8 as well, so I may be missing something obvious.

Thx

You needed to do a full install and choose management options during install.

If it's just the management studio you need then you have to download and install that on it's own.

Also you can pin more program's to the "start" menu / page by holding the mouse down at the bottom of the screen. Then right-click and you can pin additional program's.

I am told to add remove programs in windows 8 you should be able to just type in,
add remove  and press enter   to get to the add remove programs  window

But to add MySQL Server for windows  just download the .msi  file and go to %windir%\explorer and then navigate to the downloads folder if you can not get there easily by your browser's view downloads or control - J key in the latest version of Internet Explorer and then right click open containing folder assuming the file listed is actually where it downloaded to.

You should then be able to right click on the .msi file   install. This will install a MySQL server instance. Be sure to have the version of MySQl for Windows 8 and you may wish to
upgrade to windows 8.1 with the task bar/start button bar
