> Initialised it how?
Using mysqld --initialize --datadir


That just says to create a new file using a text editor. I'm specifically looking to get the default option file, not an empty file.

Oddly enough this page:

states that no default option file is created during data directory initialization on a non-Windows platform, which suggests that since I'm using Windows, one should've been created, except it wasn't. I also haven't been able to find a my.ini or my-default.ini anywhere on my computer. Hence why I need to find out how to create it.

True, but it makes it easier since I won't have to run mysqld with all the necessary options every time I need to access a server. And like I said, I already created a service for it, so the link on how to do it is obviously unnecessary. Only problem is that it's not added in Workbench despite being found, and that I obviously couldn't refer to --defaults-file since I don't have one as of yet.
