Yup you need vcenter client to really work with vcenter.

you can use the client from any compatible Windows system, too, so you can download/install it onto your workstation if you like.

Vcenter server is installed as a service (so opening services.msc should show it). As said before, the vsphere client is the way you manage your vsphere cloud through vcenter server. Or you connect to your ESX servers directly through the client.

Ah, there is no icon, it's a vSphere Center is a Service, unless you also install the client from the installer separately.
