2.3.2 Launching

To start MySQL Workbench on Windows, select Start, MySQL, then select MySQL Workbench. This executes the MySQLWorkbench.exe file on your system. Alternatively, start MySQL Workbench from the command line, for example:

shell> c:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL\MySQL Workbench 8.0\mysqlworkbench.exe

Use the -swrendering option if your video card does not support OpenGL 1.5. The -version option can be used to display the MySQL Workbench version number.
