I have installed SQL Server 2008 Express, as I just want to create a few tables and run queries against them. After installing I am a little unstuck. I have an "instance" running, but I am not sure how to proceed and see the GUI where I can create tables/run queries?

Start SQL Server Management Studio and connect to the local database. Then you can create a database and it's tables via the menus or via SQL commands.
