Connect to the SQL Server

First thing we need to do is to connect to the SQL Server instance we want to use. We can do this by clicking on:
  • Connect button in toolbar
  • File > Connect from main menu

After that, we are presented with standard connection wizard. There, we need to type server name and login details. At this point, we don't need to select any database:

You can click on Test Connection button to check if connection parameters are set properly.

At the end, click OK to connect to desired SQL Server and close connection wizard.

If everything is fine, Database Browser will be populated with databases from all available servers (local and linked):
