Installed but Cannot Create User


I have just installed the latest version of MySQL and to be frank the interface is not what I expected.  I need to create a user so I can use a GUI interface I have downlooaded which I can then use as normal.  The command line interface is something I am not familiar with.

Can anyone tell me how to create a new user with password so I can access the server and start creating databases.

Thanks in advance

After installing you should be able to log in to mysql as root without password. So in the GUI try login with user root with a black password.
Are you talking about Linux installation?
This GUI is this phpMyAdmin?

got it, root was right, but I did create a password. Thanks again
That's strange. Normally with installation user root is created with an empty password except when you installed it with the installer and gave the root account a password already.

Do you remember if you had to give a password when installing MySQL?
Oops, didn't see you already solved it.
Great for you.
