SSH is disabled by default for security, which is annoying for a headless RPi. The usual trick was to create an empty
ssh file in
/boot/ which was possible even from Windows, because the boot partition is visible.
Now (I tried with Raspbian Stretch Lite) it doesn't seem to work anymore, and this is confirmed by this comment here:
I tried the headless setup on Raspbian Stretch Desktop from 2018-03-14 and it doesn't seem to be working anymore, was working with previous versions. – JBaczuk Apr 3 '18 at 18:36

Does NOT work on November raspbian stretch – decades Jan 25 '18 at 15:18
How to do it today? (I'm looking for a solution working from Windows)
