You'd do "pip install pyqt5-tools" - it seems like that wheel is built
for Python 3.5 only though... :-/

Basically do a second installation of Qt via their installer. The
version doesn't matter much, as you'll only need this installation to
use Qt Designer (which comes with it).

No, not since PyQt switched from .exe installer to wheels (which can
be installed with pip).
