    Can't see SQL Server 2012 icons

    I have just installed Windows 8/8.1 - first time user
    I just installed SQL Server 2012 and rebooted.

    I can't find where SQL Server management studio is located. I've looked on the start screen and I've looked on the Desktop. I can't find an Icon to run it anywhere.

    Any ideas?

    While in the Start screen type "sql" and see if anything pops up. If so, and it's what your looking for, pin it to the Start screen.

    There really is no Start Menu item for that, to configure you have to find the install location and find the configuration tool in there.
