How can I use these commands on a Windows computer?

Question

When I try to use touch on my Windows computer, it says the command is not found. How can I use this on Windows?

Answer

A good program for emulating a Linux environment is the Git Bash terminal. That article will show you how to set it up on Windows – don’t worry about the Git stuff. That’s another tool you should definitely become familiar with, but the Git Bash terminal will allow you to use touch, mkdir, etc.

Hey guys, don’t use touch. A more tradition way would be to use help for listed commands.

If your computer runs slowly, here’s a list!

help - Displays this message
mkdir - Makes a directory in the specified folder
echo - Prints a message
color - Changes the color of the screen
