Click on the name of your database once to highlight it. Keep the mouse button held down and press control key (Ctrl). Keep the Ctrl key held down and, using the mouse, drag the highlighted database. A small plus sign should appear. This means that you are in the process of making a copy. Release the Ctrl key and the mouse button and a copy should be made.

You will be able to see which database is a copy, because it will say 'Copy of…' and then the name of your database. Alternatively, you can right click on the database which you created and click 'Copy'. Then, right-click again and select 'Paste'. Unlike the first method, you will have to rename your copy.
