Re: How do I use these files?

You're looking at two fairly steep learning curves, one for MySQL, one for Workbench.

A .mwb file is probably a saved WorkBench database model. A .sql file is probably a script of SQL DDL and Inserts which will work with MySQL if it was generated by a compatible version of MySQL. Installing WB in Windows can associate .sql files with WB such that clicking on them opens WB, but it doesn't tell WB what to do with them.

Beware that MySQL and WB aren't integrated into the Windows system to the same degree that Microsoft products like SQL Server are. Read https://dev.mysql.com/doc/workbench/en/wb-data-modeling-menus.html for how to import a .mwb file into MySQL using WB, https://dev.mysql.com/doc/workbench/en/wb-importing-sql-script.html for how to import a .sql script.

Good luck.
