The quickest way is probably to download and install MySQL Workbench.  https://www.mysql.com/products/workbench/  Since MySQL and other SQL databases are large applications with a lot of details, 'easy to read guide' is not something I'd expect to find.  There is a link to a tutorial on the page for Workbench.
If you want to connect using an ODBC-capable application, such as Microsoft Excel or Access, you would just have to set up an ODBC connection under control panel, administrative tools, data sources.  configure the data source with the server name and an appropriate user and password and you can then connect using this data source.
