2.3.2 Launching

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

"C:\Program Files\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.
