How to install MySQL Workbench Community Edition on Windows 10
As you all know, MySQL is one of the most popular database management systems today.
We have a tool called the MySQL Command-Line Client which is a command line window used to manage operations with the MySQL database administration system.
But the command-line interface is often not user-friendly (especially for newbies), and with large databases managing by command is often more difficult and less intuitive.
So in this article I will show you how to install the MySQL Workbench tool - this is a tool that helps us to visualize the management interface for operations with the MySQL database management system.
NOTE: 'When installing MySQL Workbench, the MySQL installation is integrated so you don't have to install it separately.'
