How do I start MongoDB server using Windows command line?

Recommended Posts

Since there is no 'NodeJS/MongoDB' discussion section I decided to post my question to 'JavaScript'.

I am trying to start the server by running mongod.exe, and by doing the same thing using cmd. I want to start the server and use it with a tool called Robo 3T to manipulate NoSQL databases. There is no active connection can be seen in Robo 3T after I start mongo. 

Can anyone explain what I am supposed to do? What is the correct way to run MongoDB on Windows?
