How to administer MySQL on Ubuntu from MySQL Workbench on Windows 7

Last Modified: 2014-05-15
I have MySQL running on a dedicated Ubuntu server and I have installed MySQL Workbench on my Windows PC. I can connect to MySQL and view stuff but I can't create users or do much admin as it seems that the root@% user doesn't have the same level of privilege as does root@localhost.
How can I give more power to root@% or better still, create a new user that is specific to my Windows PC IP address that has more power?
