After installing the SQL 2008 R2 Management Studio, 'Object Explorer ‘ is not appearing. When we are trying to connect to the server connection will establish, but I am getting an error saying 'The requested toolbar can not be found'.
I solved this problem by setting the 'default window layout'. For this go to

'SSMS' --> Menu --> Window -->Reset Window Layuot

Once the layout is set, everything’s looks normal.
