Windows 7: How do I start/open/ and use a program with no GUI

How do I start/open/ and use a program with no GUI

I realize this is a basic question, but that's just where I'm at in my
computer literacy learning process.
I want to use several of the Sysinternals suite of tools. Some have a GUI,
but many don't. Ignorant me just double clicks on their generic icon and-
a brief flash of the command-line interface screen and nothing more. Can
someone point me to some information on the use of this type of program?
I'm not a complete novice on the use of the command prompt screen, as
I use it for sfc /scannow, ipconfig, pinging to find my latency, etc. Thanks
for any help offered.
