Error starting Workbench administrator etc

I installed the latest MYSQL server 8.0.14 but I am baffled at this error - never had I deal with this error or I have been dealing with other problems that I really can't get the hang of things about how MYSQL server work already.

Here's the error :

Error starting Workbench administrator
DBLogin Error : Access denied to User 'root'@'localhost'

Please find the full error :

Now, I am baffled by this error because I can already log into MYSQL server so why the error.

Also, I'd like to find out if it is necessary for me to put in the my.ini file at the manage server Connections panel :

I did an attempt in which I put in the my.ini file located at Data folder for MYSQL but the connection failed. Do I need to further configure my.ini in order for the test connection to work?

It's been so long I had to set up MYSQL I just forgotten all the steps.

So, I really hope I can get some help here.
