starting psql in windows, please help!

Hi there, I am totally new to database programming, and just have a question about starting psql. I've downloaded the latest version of postgresql in windows (xp), and now I need to start using it, except I have no idea where to begin. The documentation at under "starting psql" doesn't seem to be for windows, so I would really really appreciate it if someone could tell me how to start psql in windows.
Many thanks.


p.s.: I intend to have the databases on this machine, and run queries (and eventually use jdbc) on the same machine. What I have now is postgresql showing up in my start menu, with these options: configuration files, command prompt, documentation, pgAdminIII, psql to 'postgres', reload configuration, start service, and stop service.
