Hi,
just downloaded and installed (i think) sql server 2016 express on my laptop.
The last version of sql server i used was 2008.
I was expecting  a console that would allow me to manage databases, and run queries, i believe it was called query analyser in 2008. I cant seem to find it.
The purpose of installing this is to use it as a development environment...
any advice appreciated, thanks
