If you want to start the MySQL server, you can run the "mysqld" program in a command window as shown in the following tutorial:

>cd \mysql\bin
>mysqld

"mysqld" will run quietly without printing any message in you command window. So you will see nothing after entering the "mysqld" command. You should trust "mysqld" and believe that MySQL server is running ok on your local computer now.

Another way to start the MySQL server is double-click \mysql\bin\mysqld.exe on your file explorer window.
