If I do that right after starting emacs, the *Messages* buffer opens. It
certainly does not allow me to type "something". On my system, clicking
on the minibuffer only changes focus to it; it won't allow you to type
away unless it's already expecting input.

If you want to enter a command in the minibuffer, type "M-x" (Alt-x) and
type. If you want to do something else, please explain.
