If this is your first use of MySQL,
Dos Command window
c:\>mysql -u root -p
Then just hit [return]

After that
mysql>show databases;
mysql>use test;
mysql>show tables;

If not:
mysql> SET PASSWORD FOR root@localhost=PASSWORD('rubberchicken');
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.06 sec)

There is an online manual at

You dont need to use the command prompt, the defaut root account for mysql is:

user: root
pass: (no pass set, leave blank)
