On the Java client there is a button. On the winvnc client it's in the
system menu. To access that, click on the icon in the top-left of the
window. Or, right-click on the program's entry on the taskbar.

The command line is a different kettle of fish, it's a hangover from DOS
times but it's still useful in programs ported from unixish systems. Every
program can be started from the Command Prompt or MS-DOS Prompt found in
your Start Menu. First you have to go to the folder like this:
cd "c:\program files\vnc"
Then you type the program name:
vncviewer
You can also put in some optional settings after typing the name of the
program, like this:
vncviewer -option:setting
If you type vncviewer -help it will display a list of settings available.
