Or XLMPP for that matter 😉
There are two ways to do it. Both are basically the same, but one just makes it a lot easier. We’ll go over the harder one first.
Your MySQL binaries should be somewhere under your XAMPP folder. Look for a /bin folder, and you'll find the mysql.exe client around. Let's assume it is in c: xampp mysql bin. The moment you reach the /bin folder,issue this command below. This section describes use of command-line options to specify how to establish connections to the MySQL server, for clients such as mysql or mysqldump.For information on establishing connections using URI-like connection strings or key-value pairs, for clients such as MySQL Shell, see Section 4.2.5, “Connecting to the Server Using URI-Like Strings or Key-Value Pairs”.
Start the command prompt, and cd to the xampp directory. It’ll usually be something like:
cd ././Program Files/xampp
if you used the installer and default install location.
Once in there, cd to the mysql bin directory.
Now, run the command:
mysql.exe --user=root --password=
And the MySQL command line will start. If you’ve changed the username or password of the MySQL user, you need to change the –user= and –password= accordingly.
Basically the same way as before, but we’ll create a batch file to make it easier.
First, create a file called
mysql_command.bat in the XAMPP directory.
Edit this file with Notepad or any text editor, and paste in this:
Save it, and change the –user= and –password= if you’ve changed the user or password.

It’s as easy as that.
