Problems starting mysql server

Hello, I downloaded http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/installer/5.6.html and I believe I bhave workbench and server installed. I don't have an option to double click to start the server however. How do I start the server? I am trying to do the treehouse_movies_db. I can see it load in mysql. So I think Im on right track just getting hung up.

I guess I need help setting this up.

Thanks.
