    Post Enter Commands? - Simple Question

    I feel really stupid for asking this.

    I have MySQL installed, but where is the prompt for me to enter commands? When I open the .exe file in the bin folder, the prompt disappears. The only place I can find it is in the Processes tab of the Task Manager.

    So what do I use to enter commands?

    1) Open Command Prompt
    2) Type cd c:\path\to\mysql\bin
    3) Type mysql (If you've set a password for root use mysql -uroot -p)
