In order to visualize a molecule in PyMol, you need to load the molecule structure from a file first.

1. Start PyMol and click the "File > Open" menu. You see the file open dialog box.

2. Find and select the "Molecule-HY-001.sdf" file, which stores a molecule structure in a SDF (Structure Data File) file.

3. Click "Open" to load the molecule structure from the file into PyMol. You see the molecule structure is displayed in the viewer area.

Now you can use PyMol commands or mouse clicks to control how the molecule structure is displayed.
