[PyQt] Loading PyQt5 Designer

Now I am totally confused -- seems like conflicting answers. I have python 3.6 64-bit and I have PyQT5 64 bit downloaded via pip3.
How to I get Designer so I can make GUIs -- I want it to show up in my Windows Start menu so I can just click it to get going.

Don't use the PyPi file. :[ My latest release (though not actually
recent) is on GitHub and wouldn't fit on PyPi.
I keep hoping to get a chance to improve this package but it's not
fitting into the work schedule yet as it wouldn't see the use there that
I initially expected. I honestly don't recall how the PyQt Designer
plugin 'links' to Python. If you make custom plugins that can run in
Python 3.5 then you could probably get by with just an extra Python3.5
install to support the plugin (is even that required?).
For most stuff I'm guessing there's no issue using a 5.7.0 Designer to
make .ui for 5.7.1.

This won't get you the PyQt Designer plugin, if you need that for using
custom Python widgets in Designer. Though, while getting started you
certainly may well not need it.
