I do not see the available databases toolbar item in SSMS, Why?

Missing Toolbar item? NO

The SQL Server Management Studio(SSMS) is highly context sensitive.

For example, unless a Query Window is open (by creating a new query or by clicking first in the query window) the menu item Query will not be displayed.


When you open a query window (by using New Query  from database or SQL Server
instance node) then you will see the Query menu item.


In a similar manner depending on how whether View | Toolbars | Sql Editor
is chosen or not you will not see the 'Available databases' item as shown in the
next image.
