steps to install Git on windows

In this article, we will look at how to install Git on Windows. I don’t know if it’s going to be the same for other OS. We have already talked about what git is in this article here.

Click here to download the git software. After downloading, locate the downloaded file, and then open it to start the installation. You can go through the install until you get to the screen below, then choose Nano or Notepad++, but I’ll recommend Nano because Vim might be a bit difficult to use for beginners.

On the “Adjusting PATH ENVIRONMENT” page

I would recommend “Use Git and optional Unix Tools” as this will provide you UNIX commands like “ls” and “cat”.

Next is the “Configuring the terminal emulator to use with Git Bash”, I will recommend that you choose “use Windows’ default console window” for simplicity.

On the next page, choose the options I choose in the picture below and click install.

The installation might take time a little bit, but once it’s done installing, click finish.

Open your terminal, either in your VS Code or the default command prompt which you can open by running ctrl + R then type cmd and click enter to open it. Type “git” and click enter, you should see something similar to the screen below.
