Thing is, since you're using XAMPP on a local machine, you probably don't want to bother with phpMyAdmin in the first place (it is pretty slow, sadly.)
Try either Navicat Lite
for DB management, or MySQL GUI tools
(which are EOL, but there is no stable replacement currently available), both work pretty well, though I prefer the MySQL GUI tools myself.
OK, not sure what is causing it, but when I start phpMyAdmin, the left pane is just a list. There is a dB called "cdcol", if I go into that dB, then the left pane changes into the drop-down menu style I'm used to using, & going from there to any of the other dB's in the drop-down list return the same thing, Drop-down menu's. It goes like that again (just a plain list) after restarting the Server, & after system reboots. Not sure why it's behaving like that, but I'm just glad I can get it to work the way I'm used to with A2T.
Looked at the 2 links, Navicat is paid, so not at the moment, & MySQL GUI Tools says that Workbench is available instead. I'll have a proper look at that site tomorrow sometime.
I'm just waiting till tomorrow, gonna try XAMPP on my Vista Laptop.
