The almighty bin folder
Open up a File Explorer window and head over to the bin folder. The default location for this folder on a 64-bit Windows machine is C:\Program Files (x86)\DataStax Community\apache-cassandra\bin. A bunch of important files are here, including the cassandra-cli.bat file, which runs the CLI client, and the cqlsh Python script, which runs the Cassandra Query Language (CQL) Shell.
Double-click the cassandra-cli.bat file to load the CLI client now.
