Starting and Stopping MariaDB on Windows OS

I am new to MariaDB. What is the recommended way to safely stop & start MariaDB on a Windows OS?

Answer Answered by Vladislav Vaintroub in this comment.

The recommended way to start and stop MariaDB on Windows is to run it as service. It is trivial to start and stop the service.

There are other ways to "safely" stop the server - e.g "shutdown" command in client, or CTRL-C , if you're running it on the command line
