SSMS question

I installed SQL 2016 however when I clicked the link to install Management studio it linked me to version 17.4. Does this work with Sql server 2016? or should I look for SSMS for 2016?

It works perfectly fine with 2016 (and many versions previous).
Use 17.4

SSMS is already a separate product from SQL Server. It has monthly releases. Always use the latest. You can download it from that link.

Yes, by design
