Error occurred when I open a file on nano

when I type “nano hello_world”, terminal prompted “command not found”, anyone know how to solve this problem?

Where do you type this? In cmd on windows?

cygwin terminal on win10

Cygwin still used? I thought the recommended way was to use WLS (windows linux subsystem).

it could be that nano is not installed? Nano is a command line text-editor, that might sound difficult, but its a program like any other. Before you can use a program, it has to be installed

nano is installed, error still exist.

Can i see a screenshot?

Given how little information i can find on this matter (and any information found is old), i would really recommend switching to WSL.
