What you're looking for is SQL Server Management Studio Express. It will auto auth with your system credentials and show you the current databases on your system.

Check in Program Files, for a folder called Microsoft SQL Server - assuming a default install.

  • In Administrative Tools\Services look for SQl Server, SQL Server Browser.
  • Login as an administrator to your machine.
  • If you do not have Management Studio, you can download Express version it from Microsoft.
