    I'm new to SQL Server and using V18.4. I want to create a new database on my local machine so that I can do feasibility testing and development before moving it later. When I go to Connect / Database engine there's no option for creating a new one. What should I do? Thank you for any help.

    Have you actually installed an instance of SQL Server? V18.4 is a release of SQL Server Management Studio, which is the tool you use to access the SQL instance, but if one hasn't already been installed, you won't be able to do much with SSMS.
