Installing and configuring the Microsoft Azure Storage Explorer

The Microsoft Azure Storage Explorer is a convenient Windows application that you can use to explore your queues, blobs, file shares and databases in your Azure subscription. This very convenient tool allows you to create new storage accounts, inspect all your data to find issues, make sure that everything is working properly etc.

You can install from this website. After you install the tool on your development machine, start the explorer.
