comment phpmyadmin wont work on fresh ubuntu 12.04 vb setup
I personally prefer to use the MySQL Workbench app : mysql.com/downloads/workbench , especially if your adminstering from your Windows 7 machine. The phpmyadmin app is from the days before "MySQL Workbench" was available...

No, for the reason that 'for /?' was the obvious first place I looked and so this answer is no better than what is expected by anyone.

One tip I have: always refer to using Notepad++ "Plugin Manager" first before assuming there is any functionality not already there.
